Using the template here, cut out the bag piece from the cotton canvas. Mark the four U shapes for the buckle loop, handle strap and over-top strap placement onto the right side (RS) of the canvas with the chalk.
Using the relevant templates, cut the buckle loop, handle strap and over-top strap pieces from the leather with a craft knife and metal ruler. Use an awl (or a needle) to transfer the stitch lines and the buckle holes onto each piece, punching a series of holes through the template into the surface of the leather. For the stitch lines, remove the template, then use a pencil and ruler to join the pierced dots. Make the buckle holes using the 0.3cm (1/8“) punch. To make the buckle loop, cut out a slot between the two holes.
