Following a delivery from Birdsall leather & craft in Australia I was finally able to finish the iPad sleeve. Â My wife was gob-smacked that I had actually completed something, which was probably the best part of this project. Â I just didn’t tell her that the sleeve was done, but the bag was nowhere near finished yet 🙂
The canvas flap (made from left-over canvas from the ex-WWII haversack) was already hemmed, and the corners sewn over. Â The next step was to attach this to the leather sleeve. Â Once that was done the final step was to use a leather scrap as the anchor for the harness post to close the bag.
