Autumn Leaves Leather Bag Charm

Make the perfect autumn bag charm using leather or suede offcuts to create cascade of falling leaves! Using metal eyelets adds a luxurious touch.

You Will Need:

-Leather Offcuts (mine are from Abakhans but Pittards is another option)

Hole Punch and Eyelet Setter (I have this one that does both and came with lots of eyelets!)


Leather Cord


-Tailors Chalk or something to mark the leather

How To:

Autumn Leaf Leather Bag Charm

1. Draw some leaf shapes onto your leather using tailors chalk or a pen. You want 3 larger ones measuring 6cm by 2cm, and 4 smaller, measuring 4cm by 1.5cm, and cut them out.

3.Cut 7 15cm/6in length of the leather cord (or cut thin strips from your leather offcut). Thread a piece through the eyelet of one of the larger leaves and tie the ends in a knot. Attach the other two larger leaves to the loop.

4. Add two smaller leaves to each side, trim off the tails of cord and attach your charm to your bag using another piece of the cord!
