Lagging on posting my jacket even though it's finished. In the meantime, I made this quick replacement for THIS BAG (same pattern) since I spilled gross stuff inside of it. I used the messed-up scarred part of an an undyed hide since it's just for me and I like the imperfections.
2 pieces, super easy.My awesome arbor press, used to push an embossing plate into the leather surface.Sew it inside out, turn it.Done, so quick. I like the flawed surface and it's only going to get better as time goes on.
