  1. As a matter of fact... it IS a voodoo symbol
  2. I second this. Look in the art section, not the leather section. There's a plethora of art books out there on how to draw flora.
  3. I'm trying to figure out how you mean to put it together. Do you intend to make the pouch out of part of the skin and attach the legs and tail separately? Or have it all one piece and leave the legs and tail as a flap on the bottom hanging below the stitch line?
  4. The way I've found works best for me, is to mark your stitching holes on what is going to be the exterior before gluing the pieces together, and then use an awl to punch all the way through the two pieces.
  5. With veg tan, I case and form it with the clip or a similar diameter dowel inside. While the dowel is inside, I mark where my stitch line has to be for a snug fit, then I take the dowel out and stitch. Usually I have to put a little oil on the clip's rod to get it to slide into the finished product.
  6. I always enjoy seeing your work
  7. Try stores that carry jewellery making supplies. I've seen these type of plates there before.
  8. With that last one, it almost looks like your machine or needle may be out of alignment. Also, do you take your time with the stitching, or do you rush it through?
  9. Good that this guy was shut down, at least for now. As for Pinterest, it's essentially an image based bookmarking system. If you're not wild about your work being pinned by someone, you can contact Pinterest and they will remove the pin.
  10. While I'd love to be able to claim ownership of the design, I'm not that good of an artist. The original picture is by nirvanaoftime.deviantart.com/ Her artwork is phenomenal.
  11. I really like the two with the splatter dye jobs
  12. I went over the lines carefully and repeatedly.
  13. Tinkerton,

    I just came across the post of the leather shoes that you made. I was wondering if you have or can instruct me on were to get the pattern for those. I would love to make some for my family.

      I bought the pattern here https://www.craftsy.com/other/patterns/happy-feet-36-42-size-shoe-video/155078

      after seeing it on www.instructibles.com

  14. So, it's been a while since I've picked up my stamps, but recently I made a wallet for my friend. Took me a little while to get back into the swing of things, but I'm for the most part pleased with how it turned out.
