I used some baking paper and a pen, to trace the lines down the middle strip of my bag.
I've used that paper template to cut the appropriate sized piece of fabric, folding over the edges, pinning and machine stitching.
And used my glue gun to glue the fabric strip in place.
And there it is
A fairly subtle leather satchel restyle, which did not cost a cent to do, other than electricity used for the glue gun and sewing machine. A big cost saving if compared to buying a bag similar to those shown above.
