I have been sewing a lot lately, and didn’t have time to take pictures yet! So, one of the last things I made was my sister birthday’s present, a trio zippered bag!
I work on the same basis as the Duo zippered bag, but I used 3 different faux leather colors to make the pouches.
The purse is super practical with its three pouches. You can choose to make it in a wide variety of colors and combine them the way you like to suit your taste.
The pouches are not lined, this makes it a very easy sewing project to achieve.

How to sew a fake leather purse
Supplies you will need to make a leather zippered bag:
- 3 zippers of 12″ / 30 cm
- 6 faux leather rectangles 12″x8″ / 20×30 cm
- 12 grommets (this kit is perfect)
- 2 metallic rings (key rings or these ones)
- 1 chain of 24″ / 60 cm (or bag strap)
- Sewing machine
- Leather needle
Cut 6 rectangles of 12″ x 8″ (20 x 30 cm) and rounded two corners. Put grommets on the two corners that aren’t rounded. You can have a look at the picture below if you have any doubt.
To sew the first pouch, grab two rectangles. Lay one right side facing up and align the zipper on the top edge. The zipper is the wrong side up. Sew them together.
Place the second rectangle on top, the wrong side up. Align the top edge with the zipper and sew.
At this point, both rectangle are sewn with the zipper. Leave the zipper open and make a seam along both of the zipper sides to keep the leather flat.
Place both rectangles on top of each other, right side facing, and sew along the three sides.
Turn the pouch right side out and done.
Repeat to make two more pouches.
If you prefer following a tutorial with pictures to make the pouches, you can follow steps 1 to 7 of this tutorial. Be careful not to add the leather strips mentioned in step 7.
This is what you must have at this point:
Then just pass a key ring on each side of each pouch to keep all 3 together. Finish by adding the chain t make the purse strap.
Et voila! Nice new bag for my lovely sister! The inspiration came from this fabulous Celine bag.

Beautiful! The leather pouch is too stylish I must say. The color is appealing and attractive. I really like the design and whole fabrication process. Though I often carry my Kilkenny orla kiely bag, but sometimes I also like to fabricate such unique stuff at home. I love to do experiments with leather and fabrics. I will surely try to create the bag at my home.
