  1. The Great Wave off Kanagawa

    Are there any dividers or pockets inside? I'd like to make one similar for the wife.
  2. Looking for free clipart

    I don't use the programs on those clip art CDs. Sometimes you can get them directly by digging into the folders or turning on 'show hidden files' in explorer and find them that way. No guarantee that'll work but sometimes it does. I've found them in .tga and .jpg formats, among others. There are programs that will convert from one format to another.
  3. Looking for free clipart

    Glad I could help Sometimes doing a Google Image search for line art or clip art can get some good stuff too.
  4. Looking for free clipart

    https://www.1001freedownloads.com/free-cliparts/ https://openclipart.org/ I also get CDs full at Walmart sometimes, if they have them.
  5. Incredible work

    I love the pea pod zipper pulls/key fobs. Fantastic work.
  6. Edge Finishing

    I may be wrong but, I never burnish edge paint. Dye yes, but not paint. Takes the paint off in my experience.
  7. Hand sewing tip for people with arthritis

    Maybe some way to attach that disk to a finger so you don't have to pick it up every stitch...? Looks like a good thing to have.
  8. Center Line On Edges

    Take it all the way to the edge. Leaving it shy of the edge wont let the leather edges stick together and will show the line.
  9. Center Line On Edges

    Are the two pieces glued? Contact cement helps keep the edges together.
  10. That isn't meant to pivot, as in making a circle. That is an adjustable width creaser, not really a compass.
  11. Recreating a Pattern on Auto Upholstery

    Something you might be interested in. He's currently doing bucket seats. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCw_8PUaXqvjSq3p1lYouXzQ Ok, just found your other post. Disregard...
  12. Buying my first double shoulders?

    Springfield sells a double with one straight edge for about $50. It's not the best leather in the world but it's great for belts. I'd put it at about a C grade.
  13. Leather Burnisher

    Just try not to start any leather fires LOL. Ought to do the trick.
  14. I just discovered this problem myself. My mahogany almost looks black. Then I found that if you bend and flex the leather, the color comes out, kind of like pull up. I will dilute it next time though with alcohol. Does that need to be denatured or will isopropyl work?
  15. New collar for my dog

    First thing to break is the clip on the leash. Good looking collar.
