DIY Embossed Leather Bag
I was so happy to see this Instructables’ tutorial! I posted a similar DIY in 2012 (see below) and it’s still one of my all time favorite posts!
These DIY Leather Embossed Tech Bags were made using the wet forrming leather technique:
Wet forming leather is basically sculpting. You soak leather in water and then mould it into three dimensional shapes that keep their form when the leather dries. The process is wonderfully tactile, and when done right the results are amazing.
The possibilities of what to emboss on the leather are endless, as are the creations you can make from this DIY.

In 2012, I originally posted a DIY for making these embossed leather bags from Passions for Fashion here. Her bags were inspired by Vlieger & Vandam Guardian Angel Leather Clutches (you can see these bags at the link). *The answers to questions raised in the comment section are definitely worth reading.
