  1. Ah I see. That's a very nice looking card wallet. Love the color
  2. I like them very much. For me it's a great price/quality ratio. I think KS is much better, but I could not pay that much when i needed new irons, so.I went with Wuta. For higher SPI I heard great things of Kevin Lee pricking irons. Again, great price/quality ratio. Do you have an instagram account? I'm curious about your projects. I'm also certain I already follow you
  3. Thread is 0.45 mm poly thread from Wuta on aliexpress. The holes are made with Wuta 3mm spacing pricking iron
  4. Thanks! And thanks for the recomandations! I bought Fenice since then, used it on the other 2 wallets I posted here. Much better!
  5. Black tote with traditional romanian motif

    He he . Expat, or you lived/visited Romania? I found that sticking the needle from the outside, to see where the hole is on the inside helped.
  6. Black tote with traditional romanian motif

    I know, and the client is very happy with the bag, but there are some things I want to improve in all my work. Thanks!
  7. Black tote with traditional romanian motif

    Thanks! The pictures, as always when doing product photography, obscure some of the mistakes. For example, on the handle, the cut of the edges is not straight and flush. Also, on the bottom corners, the finishing needs more care. Better butnishing and again, straighther cuts.

  13. Black tote with traditional romanian motif

  14. Finished this tote, it was a fun project, got to try new techniques, like the round handles and sewing from inside the bag which proved easier than expected. There are some things I would do differently, but I am very pleased with the result(and so is the owner) Made from 2 mm veg tan, painted with Angelus acrylic for the motif and Roc dye for the base coat. 0.65 thread at 4 mm spacing. Hope you like it, but critique is welcome and encoureged!
