  1. Just a plain solid totebag, with a bit for decoration..not sure who to credit with the design, as it was a customer request.
  2. Yup...animal clippers will do it. Just be sure to use a fairly coarse blade so it will go through it easier.
  3. Hey Michelle! I'm just up the road a ways from you in the Barrie area..Welcome, and great collars!
  4. Contact Paul at John Garde in Toronto. Excellent to deal with.
  5. Hey! Your message box is full Can you PM me when you get a chance? Thanks
  6. No wonder mine is so dull..I didn't read the instructions properly :D Thanks Cyber, I'll try it again tomorrow and see if I can do any better.
  7. I tried to use mine for a round knife, but it didn't work out very well. I think you have to sharpen one section at a time, because you can't get the whole blade in one swipe. I ended up ruining the edge from it because I was doing it in sections, but I can't see any other way to do it. I gave up and sent mine out to be sharpened. It's still dull, so now it's a bench ornament
  8. Great price! Wish I was a little closer
  9. Hi Crafter! You're just down the road from me..I'm in Innisfil. Welcome
  10. Yes, they will sell it in fabric stores..the type with the backing is slightly heavier than the iron on type, so some stores may not have it. I use the iron on kind for making jackets, blouses etc. with fabric, but I have never tried it on leather. It should work on it, I don't see why it wouldn't
  11. It's called fusible interfacing, or fusible webbing. It's available at any sewing supply stores

  13. I don't know what steel prices are like in the US, but I just had a 12 ton shop press modified. I bought the press on sale for $80, bought 2 3/4" steel plates for $40, and traded a friend some upholstery work for the welding job. When all was said and done, it cost me around $150..if you search this site, there are photos of how it's done. It's not as complicated (or expensive) as you would think
  14. Wow! I was just curious, because I have been watching one shop in particular (not leather related) that seems to really be having trouble following through with what they are selling..They received funding as of March of last year, and still haven't provided the service they got $22,000 for! Backers tolerance amazes me LOL
