✝ leather (mine was vegan)
✝ a pencil
✝ a ruler
✝ glue (I used epoxy but I bet hot glue would be much faster)
✝ nail polish
✝ snaps, gold paint (optional)
$5 for one yard of faux leather
First, cut your piece of leather to 12.25"X30". Then, using the ruler, section the piece of leather with the dimensions above.
Note: If this is too tricky, grab a paper gift bag, take it apart and use it like a cheat sheet.
Fold the piece of leather so that the 2" section over laps the first two inches of the 9" section, making an inside-out loop.
Turn right-side out. Then using the lines as a guide, fold the bottom of the bag like it's a Christmas present.
I added snaps on the sides to help it keep it's shape, but it's not necessary.
I used the nail polish to finish the edge...hot pink...cause why not...
I wanted my bag to be a little shiny so I rubbed some gold paint on it with a paper towel. Again, totally optional.
