The layers were layered, and layered some more. I liked the effect of the raw edges and with it being canvas, it definitely frayed so I let it be! The bag itself is 16" x 10" x 3", but because of how it's sewn, it's volume is a couple inches smaller (14" x 8" x 1").
I like imperfections, so loose strands don't bother me. I'm excited to finally use the leather and hopefully that, too, will age over time.
Here are shots of the inside:
Compartments are crucial in a bag, agreed? So I took the liberty to add a couple (keeping my keys and phone separate for obvious reasons and I'm allergic to metals). Plus a handy glasses/sunglasses hook with a scrappy piece of leather that just begged to be included.
Since I'm a bit late with this piece, and Tuesday-due-day is just around the corner, my next will be a quickie. Don't you think the zipper-ring looks a bit lonely??
