CANVAS + LEATHER CARRY ALL TOTE BAG
Approximately 5.5 hours

Get hands on experience designing and making your very own canvas + leather carry all tote bag, using manual tools and a home sewing machine. Starting with a blank piece of canvas and leather components in hand, you will design and create a dimensional bag (about 14” H x 14” W x 2” D) complete with a gusset, inner pocket and leather key leash.

You'll leave with a complete tote, stencil(s) that you can use for future projects, plus a ton of knowledge and confidence.
