|A little leather shopping bag|
|Starting the workshop - note the essential cup of coffee!|
I traced the pattern onto the back of the leather with a sharp pencil and cut it out with very sharp, small scissors. I cut the thin shoulder straps and piece for the fastening with a craft knife against a steel ruler to keep these thin pieces as straight as I could.
Then all of us in the group seemed to ignore the instructions and attack the making of the bag in different ways!
I stuck silver jump rings onto the four points first.

|Making the bag shape|
Then I attached the handles, then unattached them and reattached them because I'd stuck them from front to back instead of both ends of one strap on one side and the other strap on the other side - am I making sense here?!
|This is how they turned out|
