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

A wild wild west saddle bag, simple but stylish, fun and elegant. Quite an easy project that won't take much time to make (I spent more time sanding and burnishing than actually stitching - it actually has just three seams). You will also need minimum hardware.

Size: approx. 12 1/4" x 10 3/4" x 2"

Materials:

I used 8-9 oz leather for the back panel and straps (can be thicker if you want). The important part is that this leather has to look good at the flesh side after burnishing. Try burnishing the flesh side on a small piece and decide if you like it.

For the gusset and the front panel - 4-6 oz, firmer temper.

For the flap - again, something thick and firm, like 8-9 oz. Thinner and softer leathers won’t really work here. When closing the bag you will be pressing against the flap to fasten the button stud and the leather should give support for this.


Hardware:

1 x 1” buckle
5 x button studs
1 x rivet

Pattern is designed for hand stitching.
Comes with written instructions and lots of 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.
