This fringed braided leather bag has two side pockets, a large pocket on the back, and my butterfly applique on the flap. I can usually add fringe to the bags that I make - lately I've been using more and more of it. The 1/4" wide lacing that I use is quite heavy and makes strong, durable fringe. The braided leather strap on it has three lengths of braiding down the length of it - one on each edge and a third one down the center.
The pictures on the left and in the center are views of the front of this bag with the flap flipped to the back. The picture on the right is a back view that has the full width pocket. I use large brass #10 YKK zippers on all of my products. The zippers are hand sewn in with 5 ply nylon bees-waxed thread. All three of these pictures are clickable for larger views.
