  1. Royal Blue edge dye

    I've just checked my order history on the Giardini site and looks like I've got some of the 1058 if you want I can send you some to try out just message me an address and I'll send some.
  2. Royal Blue edge dye

    I've had 3 orders from Gardini in june and july 2018 and I don't have a vat number I cant remember them asking for one maybe if they did I would have just ignored it.
  3. My 3rd go at making a bag

    Thanks, the straps at the top of the gusset is something I copied from some other bags I’ve seen (bag review). The intention is to prevent the stitching at the top from being unduly stretched if the bag is overfilled. Not sure how practical it is but I thought I’d try it out seeing as I’m just learning how to do bags.
  4. My 3rd go at making a bag

    Thanks, It's 2.5mm veg tan that I dyed with feibings spirit dye then conditioned with Sedgwick leather conditioner. The flesh side it treated with tan kote.
  5. My 3rd go at making a bag

    Some photos of my 3rd go at making a bag, I still need to do a strap for it though. I did make one but I wasn't happy with the quality of the leather strap blank I got from ebay!! so I've just bought some better leather to do another. I began this ages ago but I kept putting off doing it as I have limited work space and limited time so I kept doing smaller projects instead. I recently bought some Horween leather that I want to use for a bag but I decided I couldn't begin that till I had finished this one which helped to motivate me to finish. The bag was done to fit my old 15" laptop so its quite a big bag, my next one will probably be for a smaller laptop. Leather is hand dyed veg tan, fiebing british tan and medium brown. stitched with tiger thread (.6mm) I'd have preferred to have used some some of my current favourite thread yue fung waxed linen but I actually started this bag about 6 months ago which was before I discovered yue fung so I had to continue with the tiger thread. Hopefully my next one won't take so long to do

    Sorry I’ve checked but I don’t have any receipts .
  7. Black Mountains Leather Tools

    I've just checked their now closed Etsy shop and according to that they are based in Abergavenny, Wales
  8. Black Mountains Leather Tools

    As far as I know they are UK based as I've probably ordered from them about 5/6 times now and they have always delivered to me in UK in about 2 days. I've mainly been ordering Yue Fung threads but I recently ordered their brass utility knife with D2 steel blade and I am extremely happy with it, I prefer it to my Indispensable knife much more comfortable in my hand and the blade is excellent quality too way better than the Tina blades I have for my Indispensable.
  9. Thanks for the comments everyone it is very encouraging to get compliments from fellow leatherworkers. Battlemunky regarding the undyed edges it wasn’t until I’d finished stitching that I noticed the edge, it was a oh s**t moment you can bet that the next one I do those edges will be the first I do
  10. Just finished this tonight. The edges are done with uniters edge paint and the stitching is Yue Fung waxed linen thread and k s blade punches 3.38mm. Can't really see it in the photos but there is a section for bills as well as the 4 card pockets.
  11. Had a go at designing a business / credit card wallet, yellow one is veg tan the other which is the design I prefer with the extra slot on the back is horween Dublin.

    I'll have a look on etsy, got to be less postage than $29 I'm in no rush now though as I bought 4 and at the rate I work I'm good for a very long time
  13. Bag lever closure

    The ones I ordered arrived a couple of days ago they are good quality. like you all I have to do now is work out what I'm going to make now. I need to finish the one I'm currently busy with first though.
