The Leather Tote

Looks can be deceiving.
At first glance, this leather tote bag looks soo simple, yet it took me a long time to finish.
My point was to have only one stitching line visible; hence the golden (mustard) coloured thread running at each side of the bag.
For all of the remaining stitches, I used black thread.

It also has an inside pocket for a phone or likewise.
