Laced Utility Satchel Acrylic Template Set
The laced utility satchel is one of my long time favorite things to make and Im happy to finally offer it in acrylic template format! A simple (and forgiving) to make "laced" style satchel that uses (2) 1.25" straps to secure the sides of the satchel instead of thread and stitches. Great for tossing in a tablet, a book, a wallet and other small carry goods while on the go. It it designed to be used with button stud style closure however you could adapt to use it other ways.
The main body of this template is very long therefore the pattern will come in "puzzle pieces" that have to be locked together to create the full design. PLEASE assemble and disassemble the template on a flat table and refrain from picking it up and down a lot while together. It is secure but will put unneeded stress on the joint.
This template set includes:
- (2) Main body pieces (assembly)
- (1) Strap end and Receiver
- (1) Closure strap
- (1) Strap keeper
Dimensions: Roughly 10" wide x 11" tall x 2.5" deep
Templates allow you to have a consistent, professional look to all of your work. Use your end product as practice, a gift for friends and family, or even to sell under your own brand!
You do not need to purchase the template to view and follow along the build process in the video. I also did a write up on the Makesupply website to accompany the template and video. The write up includes:
- Links to all the tools I used in the video
- Suggestions for leather types and sizes to use in your project
