  13. What Was Your First Leather Project?

    My start was a Leather Visor...somewhere in the 60's. Bought a Visor Kit, one tool and a bottle of Omega Dye, at Tandy. Made my visor then about 15 more that summer. Then learned to do Basket Weave stamping , on the billfolds then on to belts. This has been a great Learning experience for me and enjoy it more than I ever did...
