Handmade leather tote bag/ handbag
I made this leather tote bag recently, it spent me around a month to finish, starting from the bag pattern development and design, sourcing, all the stuff. I am happy with the result though there's room for improvement. Hope you enjoy my sharing and stay tune for more updates.
