I’ve always thought the leather bags mail cariers used to use were so cool. Enter the Glowforge and COVID and I had plenty of time to make my own version. I added pockets to make it functional and it will fit most 15.6" laptops. I designed it so that every piece can be cut on a basic with no passthrough. I used a couple of things for the first time in this bag. First, conway buckles, they are so cool! I can’t believe I haven’t used these before! They require less harware to put together a shoulder strap. The other thing I used for the first time was horse butt strips from Maverick Leather. I made all the straps with it. They’re strong and durable and blend right in with the cow leather.
I made an Instructables with how I put everything together:
