  1. Thanx. It was a good learning experience.
  2. Thanx. Need to show something for my screw ups from other projects. LOL
  3. Finally finished my vest. First leather project I made for myself. First time doing a vest too. The liner was a pain in the caboose. Then I decided to edge with lacing, what the hell was I thinking. The pockets are different sizes. The skinny one is for my cell phone. Still need to iron out some of the details, such as the the dark tabs. If I ever do another vest it will cost "big time" if they want a liner in it. Learned a lot from this project.
  4. Needed a holster for my North American Arms .22 mag pistol. Found a scrape piece of leather about the size I needed, sized it up for fit, added some lacing, and now I have a holster for the pistol. Total time - about an hour.
  5. Did you stop by my house and steal my idea. LOL I'm working on a vest and doing pretty much the same lacing. Only I'm making mine out of deer skin. Looks great! Hope mine comes out as good.
  6. Thanx for the comments. I should have mentioned that this was for last Christmas to make more sense.
  7. Made this for my hunting partner to give to one of the land owners giving us permission to hunt on their land. I provided the scabbard and he bought them a Henry .22 cal lever action. Also made a stock butt cover for more protection.
  8. Naming my leather business/shop

    I don't see anything wrong with Crooked K. I like it personally. You can do some fun experimenting with that brand I think.
  9. My Leather Work

    Started working with leather about 6 months ago. Here's my work so far.
  10. Able290 Vs. Leather Patcher

    Elennah, I have the Able and love working with it. I had to do some polishing and oiling to get it to run smooth. I use it for precise sewing of up to 14 ounce leather with no issues. For projects that don't need the real precise stitching I use my Singer Model 29-4 sewing up to 14 ounce leather like cutting butter.
  11. My Sewing Machine Restorations

    Restored Singer Models 28, 99, 29-4 and smoothed out the Able 29.
