Create your own custom design and draw it straight onto leather in this illustrated purse making workshop.

Learn how to handle leather dye pens and then stitch and finish your purse so it lasts a lifetime. The high quality vegetable tanned leather will soften with age and develop its own patina as you use it. A truly unique accessory.
