Hi everybody! I have to say that I'm really proud about this reveal. It's a surprise my son has been preparing for me, and he finished it just in time for my birthday. He made this bag by hand and it came out beautifully, and the fact that he put so much love and care in it makes it even better (he even named the bag after me!). I'm incredibly happy to make this reveal :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:.

:biggrin: Thank you! I forgot to take pics of the inside (I'll take some)
I made him take some "making of" pictures, I'll share some of them too.

Does he do this for a living, or is this a hobby? Whatever- he's very talented. How long did it take him to make this?

This is his first time working with leather. It took him almost 2 months, but he had finals last month and internship on the day so he really worked on it at nights and weekends.
