The main parts of the portfolio are rectangular in shape, so to cut them directly on the skin. The main purpose of the portfolio is to preserve the integrity and security of business papers, so the size should be no less than A4 sheet. The best option is to cut 2 unnecessary folders for papers. From one take the front and rear walls, they are the same size. The second cut from the front wall and smooth coal, adjacent to one of the long sides. This will be the pattern of the valve. But we can all draw on graph paper.
Put a piece of leather wrong side up. Apply to his parts below the long sides of patterns parallel to each other, and the distance between them was 6-10 cm of the Short edges of all three pieces are a continuation of each other. Outline the pattern. Better to draw with a ballpoint pen, and cut - cobbler's knife with a metal ruler.
On leather, the workpiece will have plenty of details lining and insulation. The batting needs to ensure that the portfolio had at least a little stiffness. It can be successfully replaced, for example, thin purplenum. The lining can be made from silk, flannel or kalandrirovannogo Capronum. Baste the insulation is lined and quilted. You can also use ready-quilted fabric on sintepon, she sometimes comes across in the shops.
Fold leather detail and lining wrong side to each other and pristrochite on the edges. Treat the lateral edge. This can be used, for example, strips of suede or leather in a contrasting color or matching. Fits tight and elastic. The strips fold in half and pristrochite to the side sections of the workpiece.
Make strip for the clasp. Draw and cut out from the skin strip with a length of 60-70 cm, its width is 10-12 cm In any case the strip should be slightly longer than the workpiece, since it covers the entire portfolio and a little stands for valve Fold the strip in half and glue or sostrochite. You can make striped two piece. The short edges of the workpiece, divide in half, mark the middle line and sew to it a strip of the clasp. Leave a free piece of 5-6 at the front of the bag - there will be a hole or a loop for the buckle.
To protruding from the valve end of the strip sew the buckle. Loop for her pristrochite to the edge strips on the front of the bag. The buckle can be any. If the pin in the second end of the strip the holes. Buckle with metal parts reinforce grommets for plastic that is not necessary.
Will have plenty of sidewall. They are rectangles, the length of which is equal to the height of the lateral, width - the distance you had between the parts of the pattern. Side parts can also be strengthened by lining with synthetic padding, provided that your machine take the fabric that thick. Sew the sides to the places reserved for them.
Panel braid or strips of suede the remaining stitches. Attach a handle. This can be, for example, a belt matching the color of old bags. But the handle you can make, cut out a strip of leather of appropriate length and folded it in half. Methods of attachment can also be different. Can remano just sew to the sides of the cover. But you can do it and on the little carbines. Then sewn to the cover of metal or leather loops that, like buckle, reinforced eyelets. Handles and weave, for example, from leather cords.
