DIY leather purse

i made a leather purse today!

after surfing the web, i finally settled on a simple design.
i hand stitched the sides and then put a snap closure.


the sewing took me less than 30 minutes but installing the closure took hours.
i had to figure out how to install the female part of the snap.  

since i don't have this Snap-All/Rivet Setter...


...i cheated and just super-glued the snap. it worked!


if i had the setter, i'm sure it's supposed to be flat and not elevated. 
but it's still good and i like it!


hope it doesn't come off :D
