As my DIY eco-leather summer bag proved to be easy to make and practical, I decided to have another one – in a slightly different style.

DIY bag – what you need:

– eco-leather

– thick string

– scissors

– golden chain

– needle and thread

– optionally: leather hole punch

DIY bag – how to make it:

Step 1.

Turn the fabric out and sew bag’s both sides.

Step 2. 
Prepare two pieces of string (70cm each approximately). Wrap it with a tape before cutting so it didn’t split overmuch.

Step 3.
Now reverse the bag and make the holes with the punch. Enlarge them with knife if necessary.

Step 4.

Thread the string through the holes, then split it’s end a little bit and tie small knots at each string’s end. Here’s how it should look like from the bags center:

Do the same with both strings. Now the bag strap is ready:

Step 5.

There’s only a chain left. Simply sew it to the bag.
I used two different types of chain but they look pretty the same on the bag ;)
