The Last Few Steps
The last few steps of making a bag to prepare for shipping is to install hardware and straps, cut loose threads, run the lint roller inside to pick up any threads and leather pieces that stick during the making.
The bag is then gently folded, placed into a bag (a plastic one) with my business card and taped shut to keep dry in transit to its final destination, wherever in the world that may be.
It is then placed into a USPS Priority box with a label addressed to its new owner. And off they go to the front desk of my apartment to be picked up by the mailman in the afternoon.
These last few steps are the most fun, I have to say. It's when hours of hard work come to a close and I'm ready to let go of the bag to its owner.
