So I keep myself busy with outdoor-related things to do.
One of these projects is bringing an all leather rucksack back to life. I bought it on a yardsale yesterday for an astonishing 5SEK.... yep €0,60 or $0.75. I just could not pass on it.
The leather had a mustardyellow colour, had some nasty waterstains and was dry like parchement. The zipper from the frontpocket was broken, too, hence the low price.
Upon inspection at home I found the zipper itself inside the frontpocket, so all I had to do was reinsert it and sew up the loose ends. I also had to restitch some of the thread of the shoulderstrappadding. Add 2 treatments with leathergrease and you get an entirely different backpack!
