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

Trapezium is quite an easy project that makes a vintage classy bag with nice lines.

Video Tutorial: 

Size: approx. 12.5" x 8" x 3.5"


You can use 5-6 oz leather for the whole thing. I used 8 oz for strap, closure straps and the gusset. It is good to make the gusset out of something really thick and firm.
For the front and back panel I used 4 oz velvety chrome tan, and 3 oz for the top handle loop holders. Also if you decide to make the rear pocket, use something not too thick as well.


2 x 1” swivel hooks (or you can attach the straps directly to D-rings if you want)
Rivets or chicago screws
2 x 1” D-rings
2 x 3/4” loops for top handle
8 x button studs (size is up to you, something medium)

Pattern is designed for hand stitching.
Comes with written instructions and video tutorial.

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.
