 The cost of the large unique leather handbag, similar to this one and made with leather selected from my swatch card, page is $325.00. The cost of the smaller version of this handbag, pictured in the size comparison pictures below, is $290.

 Here are some pictures of these handbags that I took to try showing the two different sizes of them that I have made.  It is kind of tricky relating just how big these designs are. I believe the easiest way to realize their size is by there volume (length x height x width). The large one is about 510 cubic inches. The smaller one is about 310 cubic inches. 
 
 The larger one has about a 14.5" long zipper and is about 8.5 inches high. The width (where the end pockets are) is 6". 
 The smaller one has about a 12" long zipper and is about 6.5 inches high. The width (where the end pockets are) is 6". 
 
 I might suggest that you measure the length x height x width of a bag that you have and compare that to the volumes above.

 These unique leather handbags are made with braided leather and some hand sewing is done to attach the zipper. That YKK #10 zipper on the large version is about 14" long - on the smaller version it's about 12". There is a pocket on each side of it. This durable, soft moccasin cowhide that it is made of is quite strong.

Dave,
I LOVE IT. It is perfect: exactly what I wanted. Perfect size. Perfect colors. Perfect fit. Outstanding quality. You did an incredible job. I could not be happier. This is, by far, the best purchase I have made in a really long time. The bag is beautiful and, without a doubt, worth every penny. I hope you took some pictures of it to add to your portfolio. I am so pleased with your work. Congratulations on an exemplary job and THANK YOU SO MUCH for doing something almost no one can...give me exactly what I want. I am so impressed. Holley 
 Here are pictures of the smaller version of this bag. The one at the right is stuffed with a rather large bath towel. I laid the ruler in front of it to maybe better realize it's size. Most all of these pictures are clickable to view a larger images. 
 The two pictures below are of the same high contrast two toned bag. 

 This two tone bag, like all of this style, has a large pocket on each side. 
 The straps are made with an eight strand braid. This person wanted this circle applique on both sides/pockets. 
 The two went to the same person.
