  1. Ha great! I'll look into it, thanks.
  2. Thank you I'll give it a try.
  3. Good idea, thank you.
  4. Hi there, I've attached a photo of the back of some of my stitching. The front, I am happy with but the back seems to have stretched or rippled the leather as you can see in the photo. Have I been pulling the thread too hard to cause this? Any help on making it look neater would be appreciated. Thanks.

  6. I think I have some Resolene so might give that a go and leave it out in the rain to give it abit of a test. Cheers.
  7. Hi Matt, Yea, I would be tooling the leather. Thanks.
  8. Hi everyone, I'm wanting to make small veg tanned leather patches that can be stitched on things like denim jackets etc (just like the band sew on/stitch on patches you can get). My concern is if it's on any outer garments like a denim jacket, it may get rained on and I don't want any dyes to run or ruin the leather (or jacket for that matter!). I have been making a few wallets and, after dying the leather, i apply eco flo super shene and fiebings aussie conditioner. Would this be suitable? Cheers in advance, Michael
  9. The blue stitching looks great.
  10. Looks great! Would like to see the rest of it too.
  11. Thanks for the advice. Before I made that card holder with the pen loop I was making things with a stitch groove and I always seemed to screw it up (I don't know if I was applying too much pressure when using it but the round corner always made it difficult for me) so when making that card holder I decided not to do one because I didn't want the groove to look shabby and ruin it overall.
  12. Cheers, I'll give it ago in the future. Is that veg tanned leather? I use veg tanned and I'm not sure if it is best to have a stitch groove or not.
  13. Thanks. Yea, it's a pen holder. To be honest, I borrowed the idea from someone I saw on Etsy. Hey, the thread is medium brown 1mm Ritza Tigre thread and I believe the spacing was 4mm.
  14. Hi there, I'm a twenty something living in North Lincolnshire, England and I've been actively trying leather work for the past 6 months or so and have been bitten by the bug. I'm interested in making things like wallets, belts etc. and would love to start having ago at carving/stamping. Below is a picture of a card holder I made for a friend which is probably the best thing I have made so far (I welcome any criticism or advice). I have learnt what I know by basically going through YouTube and Google but I saw so many knowledgeable people on here it was a no brainer this is where I should be to learn. I look forward to learning loads more and being a member of this forum! Cheers, Michael.
