This leather tote bag is a perfect gift for a friend or family member this Christmas. Or, keep it for yourself! It is a convenient size for shopping trips or those weekends away celebrating the holidays with family.
The bag is sewn from a medium to heavy weight cotton woven and faux leather. You can often find faux leather in the apparel section of your fabric store, or you can use a lighter weight vinyl from the home decor section. I fully lined the bag with a cute acorn print, and the lining near the top opening is faced with more of the faux leather.
The hardware is what makes this bag looks so professional. I used nickel 1″ D rings for the straps and simple rivets for the strap and strap tabs. The bag closes with a magnetic snap.
