The suede side of the leather was used. It's color and feel are really soft.
An extra long zipper which goes way down the side . . .
. . . . offers plenty of room for storing and transporting stuff.
This was fun to make and given as a gift.
(I missed yesterday of take no days off november....
But not for lack of trying, I wasn't able to connect from my laptop and forgot to go back to it.)
