hand woven NORO fabric and leather bag

Just finished making this lovely anti theft bag!
I have used this hand woven NORO crayon which was woven by my mum.

I hand stitched this drop shape pen holder and

a small pocket to the front of the bag.

I have used this antique brown leather hide for the gusset.

The front gusset has this hidden pocket.
It fitted my old mobile, but I think it's not big enough for the smart phone.

This is the back side of the bag, and it has the gusset zipper pocket.

You can put your purse through here,

and it will be stored inside the inner zipper pocket.

This is the inner zipper pocket and one small pocket.

There are 2 pockets on the other side.

4 Way back pack bag with oil cloth

Just made this handsome 4 way back pack bag.
I always liked the traditional oil cloth, like the Barbour jacket,
and have made the same oil cloth myself.
I've made the coating with the beeswax, so it smells like honey.

This is the back side of the bag.

There's this deep bottle pockets on each side.

The main opening closes with the zipper.

You can put tickets, books, etc in these back pockets, and

you can put your purse from this zipper which

is connected to this inner zipper pocket.

The purse is safe inside this inner zipper pocket,
but you can take it out easily through the back zipper.

A cute bird print and a Japanese phrase.

The leather frame has been hand stitched.

These two front pockets are quite handy to have.

This back zipper is wide enough to

put through a long purse.
and this zipper opening is

connected to the inside of this inner zipper pocket.

like this.
There are 3 other pockets inside other than this zipper pocket.

I have also added this hook on thing.

I have attached a leather tape to the base.
