Tumi Bag customization, part 3

3rd customization/change I am doing to my Tumi bag.

As I realized the leather on the handle is breaking and looking bad, decided to replace it. Taking the old leather out was easy, stitching (by hand) another one was a pain and I broke 3 needles in the process.

Before:

Old Leather after I took it out. Had glue and some other material

Used the old leather to create the shape.

Marking and cutting the leather

Preparations for sewing

Painful process of sewing

Most difficult part. Needle had trouble going through two layers
