  1. Your work is beautiful! I have admired each piece you have shared. Perhaps the next time you start a project you will share with us your method of sewing the parts together. It looks very simple, and primitive from a distance, but I'm willing to bet it isn't. I would love to see how you do it. thanks Joel
  2. Ok I think I understand your method. The flap covers the two pockets when closed, but gives easy access when the wallet is open. I didn't see the larger pocket from the other angle. Thank you for taking the time to explain your design to me. thanks Joel
  3. Yes,, please, I would like to see how it works. It is nice to see something I don't understand at my age. I like the clean simple look your wallets have. Have you used this design for awhile? thanks Joel
  4. That's a nice relaxed looking bag. As a camera bag it's as it should be. All saddle stitched you say. I say hats off to you. Joel
  5. Very nice! Very clean! I am wondering, what is the purpose of the curved lifted piece in the center? I noticed that both wallets have it. thanks Joel
  6. That is a set I braided and I would love to offer help, but I don't understand what is being said. anyway, I used a rectangle core made from harness leather. Not round on this set. The braid pattern I made up myself. I just adjusted the colors to get the pattern I wanted. It's kangaroo hide pre-dyed. I used this book --->>
  7. Very nice. I really like the contrast of the colors. May I ask where you got your leathers from? thanks Joel
  8. Thank you. The rig was wanted un-dyed in the areas I didn't dye it. I offered to line it also but that isn't what was wanted. thanks for your thoughts. Joel
  9. I thought about doing it that way, but the belt was wanted unlined. It seems to me if the belt is unlined that the loops might have a tendency to snag and pull a loop out. But honestly I do not know. thanks Joel
  10. Do you mean as opposed to lacing them in?
  11. Here's a picture of the first Mexican loop holster rig I have made. two holsters and a cartridge belt with twenty 45 colt loops. comments and suggestions welcome Joel
  12. I braided this entire set around a rectangle core I cut from harness leather. As long as you pull your strings tight it works just fine. Also to me it actually wasn't any harder to do than with a round core. Joel
  13. This is excellent work. your inlay is excellent , and your coloring is superb. but what caught my eyes is the stitching. I would like to compliment your stitching. Not only is it good, but you took the time to match the thread holes so that the stitches lie side by side. This raises the whole project above the bar by doing so to beyond professional work,,,, to art. Joel
  14. Oh my mistake. sorry, thanks for the reply. Joel
