Full Video Tutorial

In this video we show how to make this leather tote using an industrial sewing machine.

This large, unlined tote is designed to be made using an industrial sewing machine, hence it’s name. The ideal material is leather, but you may find success using double sided vinyl or cork as well. The bag has not been tested with these fabrics though. This sewing pattern is suitable for ambitious beginners and the bag is quick and easy to make.
  • Exterior zip pocket
  • Exterior slip pocket
  • Two interior slip pockets
We recommend using a leather that is at least 1.4mm thick (3.5oz). But you will need to consider more than just the thickness of the leather. Some leather is softer and more flexible. The softer and thinner the leather, the softer and less structured the bag will be. If using thicker leathers, such as 1.8mm and above, you will need need to “skive” (or thin) the leather in certain areas, or remove the seam allowance and leave a raw edge. The pattern will instruct you when this is required, and it won’t affect the strength of the bag.
