With the bag in pieces, the first step is to join it back together again. I employed a great tool here that I highly suggest everyone make use of (if you have access to it) – your mother. My mum is much handier with a sewing machine than I, and we just happened to be visiting 🙂

Here is the bag mostly stitched back together, with an iPhone for size comparison. My iPad turns up tomorrow, so I better get a move-on!  Shown with a beautiful piece of Andrew Muirhead Scottish leather found on TradeMe.  Just the flaps left to finish by hand before attaching leather and straps.

Stitched back together about 5cm thinner than previously

Fine Andrew Muirhead Scottish leather
