It's taken me a while to finally get some decent photos of this, but I'm super proud of the results. Detailed with filigree punchwork designs, hand-stitched sides, and a custom shoulder strap that can be replaced to turn the bag into a belt pouch or backpack, this bag is perfect for those needing a small day pack for their adventures.

So I'm going to be honest here. This started out as a recreation of 9s' bag from Nier: Automata. Obviously...it didn't end up like it xD after a friend had gotten a daki of him, the bag in the image inspired me to make one for myself, as the design didn't look too difficult. As I was building the concept though, I decided to steer away from the game and just make the bag for myself and give it some personal flare. Both the front and back sides are accented with filigree mandalas, inside lined with pigskin, and even comes with an attached pencil pouch on the inside.

If there's one thing I would improve and/or change about this bag..it'd be the strap sleeve placement on the back. I somehow placed it exactly on the bag's axis of gravity and so it doesn't hang quite right off the shoulder. Tried to alleviate some of this by adding the small strap with D-rings in the sleeve for the shoulderstrap to connect to but it only does so much. But hey, it's my first bag and for myself, I'm allowed to make mistakes LOL. Next time will be perfect :9
