The materials I used are:
- geometric upholstery main fabric
- Black leather for front pocket flap
- Black canvas for accent fabric
- magnetic snap closure
- usual sewing materials
I assembled the bag according to the instructions, but made a couple of changes. For the leather front pocket flap, I skipped the piping and just top stitched around the edges. I also exchanged the snap for the front pocket with a magnetic closure, which would not be visible on the flap.
I used a black canvas fabric for all the accent details, such as the strap and strap holders.
I’m very happy how it turned out. It’s got a messenger bag vibe, but more sophisticated ? So it can go from the bike ride to and from work, to a day or evening on the town.
