Bicycle Handle Bar Bag | Customised Order

This is a make some time back, probably about 2 months now. Haven’t had the time to update.

This was an order from somebody based in the US, but was originally from Singapore. What a coincidence and a good way to save on shipping! No need for me to send it across the seas and hope that it doesn’t get lost in transition. It was quite a complicated project as I had no idea how big her handle bars were, and the girth of it. So I had to do it based on perception, and as Singaporeans would say, agaration.

So here’s a snippet of the build process.

I like to wet my leather before dyeing. I think it just picks and spreads the colour nicer.

My go to die. Fiebing’s leather die. Alcohol base, but dyes so sweet.

It is a round edge bag, so I had to make an oval kind of shape. Here’s after it has been skived down.

Putting it in place and marking using a silver pen. Easily removable and doesn’t leave a mark like scratching does.
