    I have a small leather backpack that I love that I use as my pocketbook. It has very handy compartments, including one that an iPad fits in. I got it from http://www.sunflowerleather.com I don’t see my model pictured on their web site but you can check out their show schedule to see if they’ll be at a craft fair near you. Mine is red but perhaps a darker color would be more manly.
