Hand Sewing Leather 201 – Tote Bag and Laptop Case

Dan Horan of Merchant Leather
This advanced leather-working class will build on your sewing skills, allowing students to create a larger, more complex project. Students will work from custom patterns while being guided through the basics of leather design and construction  including the skills necessary to design their own goods. Project options include a tote bag ($60 material fee), cross body purse ($60 material fee), 13” laptop case ($40 material fee) or 15” laptop case ($40 material fee). You will be required to choose your project at signup but a variety of leather choices for each project will be available at the beginning of class. Previous hand-sewing (saddle stitch) experience is strongly recommended. While the basics will be covered, the more experience you have, the happier you will be with you finished project.
