Just as I promised, we are checking back in with a few photos of how this bag finished up the afternoon. As you can see Renza finished with the lining, and moved on to put the front and back panels together. Anyone who sews, knows how difficult it can be to keep the edges matched up and to make sure the seams meet straight on – so in order to help our seamstress we use a potent glue that not only helps the sewing to go smoothly but adds strength to the seams making it a study bag.
Once the seams have been sewn together the bag is passed over to Renato who smooths down the edges and the paints them with a terracotta color to add “personality to the bag” but more importantly to help protect the leather from absorbing too much humidity, keeping it safe from the elements. In the meantime Renza has prepared the handles, and as soon as the Italian leather handbag and paint are drive she will put them together.
Renza started working on these adorable mini Italian leather handbags yesterday evening, she started by prepping the zip pulls and sewing the the top zip on to the front and back panel. Today she will finish these little guys up so that they can be put into the store tomorrow morning. She is setting the glue to the panels that will hold the (silver) lining in place on this Toscanella top zip mini hobo bag as the components of the bag are assembled.
Then before she can go any further these pieces are sent over to Marina who will secure the lining with a perfect row of stitches…note as I update you during the day on this bags progress, how many times she will take this in hand – yet you will never be able to find the first stitch on this mini Italian leather hobo bag.
