The Pouch - the big sister of our popular Pochette, made by you .
With our DIY Box you can easily make this leather handbag yourself. And then you'll have a unique piece in your hands that no one else has! Choose your leather colour and texture, the colour of the lining, the metal accessories. Even add your own monogram, embellish the bag with pocket patches or realise our Trapunto technique with 3D effect.
Perfectly suitable also for beginners! As a shorter project compared to the Crossbody, the Pouch is made in only 3-4 hours!
The pouch is a great project if you have never worked with leather before. Glue the leather, lining and leather fibre together, glue in the zip, sew the pieces together and finish the edges. All these steps are explained in our downloadable step-by-step tutorial. In addition, there is information on the basics of leather processing: gluing, sewing & edge processing. These are explained in more detail on the first pages. And if you still haven't had enough, our explanatory basic videos, to which you get access after purchasing the DIY Box, will also help you.
The pouch has the following dimensions: 26cm wide, 20cm high, 0.5cm deep. Because it is 4cm higher than our pochette, it is much roomier and a small miracle of space. A large women's purse, a passport case, sunglasses case and a few small items fit in without any problems. But it's also perfect as an addition to a larger bag! Bye-bye clutter in big bags! We still love to use The Pouch as a tech pack to keep all our tech stuff organised while travelling and at home.
By popular demand, we have omitted the carrying option from our pouch. So it only contains the D-rings to which a carrying option can be attached, but no wrist strap, belt or chain. In addition, you can buy statement straps or carrying chains (short and long) to make your bag even more versatile!
