Prepare the Leather Parts

Preparation is everything with your new leather accessory, but with BAGS & PIECES it's not tricky, but super easy! Depending on the accessory, first of all, lining and leather are glued together, some edges are painted with edge paint and metal details are applied.

Brushes, leather glue and everything else you need to prepare the leather parts will come with your DIY box.

06.

Sew it Together

With the traditional saddle stitch, you sew your leather accessories together by hand, which guarantees a high-quality and durable result. You don't have to prick holes in the leather parts in advance, we do that for you. All leather parts come to you pre-cut and prepared so that you only have to put them together.

While you're at it, make yourself comfortable and listen to some music or a podcast, because now it's time for some serious leathercrafting!

07.

Finishing the Edges

Seal the open leather edges with base coat and edge paint to give your leather accessories a professional finish and protect them from moisture.

The paint is applied in several layers, which makes it more durable. Roller dye pen and paint are included in your DIY box from BAGS & PIECES.
