Leather iPad Cable Satchel

The Cable Satchel designed and made by the male half of this team.  This is the perfect size to hold an iPad in either section.  It's 9 &1/2" x 11"
Copper rivets for all the straps...they will patina really nicely along with the natural leather.
An extra piece of leather for the shoulder strap to reinforce the rivets since this bag could hold quite a bit of weight
Two sections each about 2" wide.  
Nice, simple strap attached to the bag with copper rivets. A buckle to adjust the closure depending on how full each section is...

Interior pockets for the smalls that tend to end up in the bottom of a larger bag. These will have to be redesigned since now that I'm using it I've discovered they are a bit too tight.  You can see that my pens are clipped and hanging outside the pocket.
Key clip, large cell phone pocket, and a couple of pen pockets.   I think one large piece of leather divided into sections by stitching would work better.  It would also accommodate different cell phones since those can vary in size quite a bit.
Overall, a nice sized bag especially if you carry an iPad with you all the time.  It holds a book really nicely as well if you're more "old school" ;)

  1. It's beautiful! The separate pockets for pens, etc. are nice, but I see what you mean having one big piece of leather instead. Your husband is very talented! Nice workmanship! Nothing better than leather!!! They last for ever! I have a question...I have a bag that the outer pocket stitching has come undone. Where can I take it to have that fixed? I was thinking a shoe repair shop? Although I wasn't too impressed with their work on a pair of riding boots we took there....
