This listing is for PDF pattern to make the bag, not the actual bag!

Quick, simple, fun project, great gift for people with internet addiction!
You can make several and change them daily according to your mood: I added 3 other emojis as a bonus (angry, crying and the one with the hearts in its eyes).
The pattern comes without a strap but I attached a separate file for a standard strap with a buckle if you need one.
Size: 9" diameter, 2.5" deep
I used a 3-4 oz waxed firm veg tan (Ponte Wax), the main requirement is that the leather should be firm. It would be ok to use something up to 5-6 oz. For the face appliqués, 2-3 oz would be just fine. The tears on my bag are made with 5 oz medium temper leather - as long as they hold their shape, it’s fine.
1 x 12” zipper (3mm)
2 x 1” D-rings
2 x swivel hooks for the strap
Pattern is designed for hand stitching.
Comes with written instructions and assembly pictures.
The pattern has stitching holes marked for 5 SPI stitching irons (5 stitches per inch, or approximately 5.2 mm). 5 mm stitching irons made by metric system sometimes fit, sometimes they don’t (depending on manufacturer). If you have 5 mm irons and the spacing seems a tad too large for them you can print the pattern at 96.2% scale. I advise to print one page and try your irons to see how they fit before printing the entire pattern.
Formats: A4 and USLetter.
