  1. Great idea! love the bag. I was wondering if you would share your ideas on adding a pocket or two on the inside. Have you lined leather bags? Would love to know how.

  2. Thank you! Loved your ideas. I’ve collected thrift store leather and suede jackets–knowing there was a way to recycle them. . . . this is it! Would love to see more video on the topic of upcycling–especially men’s wool suits.
