In March 2013, our sister city to the south (Austin) will start enforcing their new ban on non-biodegradable shopping bags we commonly refer to as 'Plastic.' In honor of this action that Keeps Austin Weird, I have decided to publish the making of my SoCo Market bag. Sit back and enjoy the this project. After selecting the size and finding a comparable pattern from one of my reference books, I made a paper pattern for the main parts of this project. I selected some good pull up type leather that I purchased at Tandy on the discounted shelf. I was going more for the look and color than the quality. There were some marks and scars on this leather, which I felt enhanced the look for this project. I marked the leather using my paper pattern and made the necessary cuts to include the straps and inner cellphone pocket. Stay tune for more on this quality project!
