Leather Mini Tote Bag and iPhone Case


Today is my big sister’s birthday. Since my birthday, 10 days ago, we’ve been the same age – we used to love being the same age when we were kids, but now she’s over taken me again for the 42nd time the novelty is almost wearing off.

She is wanting to buy a new laptop as she’s just started a degree in podiatry so has asked for money instead of pressies from all the family. I gave her some money but also made her a little pressie too!

I’d been thinking of making some tote bags, so with the leather I’d previously bought  I decided to make a mini one in leather – big enough to hold my sister’s iPad. I used the large piece at the back. It’s chocolate brown but the photo doesn’t show it too well.


I’ve just come home from my night shift, shattered after sewing and saving lives all night.  Luckily there weren’t many people who needing saving and I was able to make the bag.

The commentary with the following pix might be a bit sparse but hopefully the pix will tell the story and I might add more words after a good days sleep.

Oh, and I made her a matching case for her iPhone too!

She’s loves her pressies, I called to drop them off at 6:30am on my way home.

Must go and try to sleep………

night-night folks

and Happy Birthday Sis’



    • She spoilt me when it was mine – the roller foot for sewing with leather AND new scissors! So it was the least I could do.

      I love making presents, need to get organised now for Christmas 🎅
