Below are some photos of a custom leather tote bag in blue pebble cowhide leather that I made for a friend. I love how this guy turned out. The slouchyness of this leather is perfect!
The sides are hand laced using a method of braiding that I came across in one of my whip-making books (more posts on that topic to come!) and the straps are attached with a contrasting black theaded saddle stitch.
