  3. Purse - learning by doing

    Thanks! I suffer from that to, so it is SO liberating to be happy with a less than perfect pice, it is perfect for my use for it, so it is kind of perfect anyway, or something like that. Thank you
  4. Purse - learning by doing

    I mean that I would like them to be only brass or only silver metall, not a mix. I will remember that next time. I have seen that video over and over and over , I had some issues with my glue, needels, and and awl, rest is just lack of experience. Hopefully next big projeckt will be more picture perfect Maybe... But I love it like it is, it turned out much better than I could have hoped. This is my first ever projeckt bigger than 10 by 10 cm. Its perfeckt as a walk/training bag for walks with the dogs or rides on my horse :D

  7. Purse - learning by doing

    So... I was out walking my 3 dogs and had my cellphone in one hand, treats in the other hand, and a serious need for free hands, and no pockets on my clothes. I needed a purs/bag that was easy to bring on walks, something made for walks and training dogs, with room for wather bottle, phone, treats, poopbags and leash. I had som ebay leather lying around, think it is upholstry/furniture leather? And I really can not follow instructions over a long period of time, and there are only so many small practise projects I need lying around. Sooo with a need and leather, I made a purse/bag. Real learning by doing projects. No manual, just what I rember from watching youtube. I wanted a rustic (?) rough look, and here we are: Lots of mistakes on the sewing, I need a better awl, I need more practice but I have learned loads and I love it! Only small regret is the brass button and metall D-rings. And I need to make a shoulderstrap and put in the last stitches.

  11. awl for saddelstitch

    Hi guys! I have cheap ebay awls, (as everything else) and one of them is diamond shaped, and I can switch the pointy end.. But, even the smalest of them are to big to make small ice holes for sadlestitching with thin thread. And I can't seem to find smaller in my go to norwegian webshops. Sooo, where can I find diamond shaped awls with small diameter ( for 0,6 thread).

I just had to have it. however, there is some small issues with it, and I wonder if anyone here can look at pictures and tell me what the pars are called and maybe help med fint where I can get them. I am planning on using it on soft goat leather. It should work on that? Right? If I can't get it to work, my kid loves it, and wants it for a toy. Just pictures to show witch model it is. I'll be very happy if anyone can help me
