Sewing hacks have been featured on BikeHacks before. We have seen bags created from reusable shopping bags as well as from dog/cat food bags, and we have also seen a wallet sewn from inner tubes. This time around reader Catherine fashions leather into a pannier. Take it away Catherine . . .
* * * * * * * * * * *I made a pannier bag for my bike rack. It had to be able to carry one library book, my U-Lock, lunch box, and a change of shoes. It was made from scrap leather from a local hardware store that sells leather by the pound (http://store.harryepstein.com). The sewing was done with a lock stitch sewing awl, it took about 5 hours to complete.
