Turning old bag into new crocodile leather cardholder (with free pattern)

This bag was found for a couple of € at a flea market and was destined for the bin. By recuperating the different panels, we’re able to breath new life into the old and dry crocodile leather.

I make and restore leather products in my spare time, mostly bags, backpacks and small items like wallets and card-holders. I am still learning a ton every time I take on a new project and always appreciate feedback on my creations.
For the moment I don’t take orders as I like to spend too many hours getting the finished product as good as I can : this means that if I were to sell these bags, the selling price would be way more than the bags are worth due to the hours of work involved.
