  1. Yes I had thought about having a strip of chainmaille inbetween. Im trying to go with a quick thing if I can that I dont have to buy extra items ( I have the leather lace I have Rivets Dont have grommets though which is one reason I didnt want to do the chainmaille cause sooner or later if I just used punched holes it would rip them through.
  2. Ok I need to make a belt out of some belt blanks that I have that are to small to fit. Is there any way to connect the belts with a braid stitch or anything like that to each other so that they will still go through the belt loops easily enough ( as in I dont want to just attach another piece of leather between the two and sew them together that way and really dont want to try to skive an angle between the two cause I've never been good at that. )
  3. Quieter Leatherworking Question

    I Have my slab on a Few old Books I was going to sell cheap at a garage sale anyways... It seems to muffle the sound a lot ( I also have them underneath a Tumbler of mine as well ).
  4. Suspender Mustaches

    Yes those. Dont think they would be still need a pattern though cause 1. I dont wear suspenders 2. the guy doesnt have any with the mustaches on them to copy for a pattern and 3. Not really finding any at stores to copy and also dont want to buy a pair just to copy the pattern from it ).
  5. Those Little Button things on the end of suspenders ( Im just using what the guy called them ) But was wondering if anyone had a pattern to make those ?

I hope to one day be able to pass on the kindness that was passed on to me.. Good luck and Good Heart.

  11. Salt Water Taffy

    Actually different ones called for different Temperatures.. I've tried that recipe only to get a burnt carmelized mess thanks anyways... I'm wondering if anyone has ever actually made it so I have a first hand experience to go off of instead of websites.
  12. Ok has anyone here ever made it... I've looked online I know there are recipes online I've tried 3 times first recipe gave me a bunch of Sugar Goop and the other two gave me nothign but Hard Candy... I have tried it at 250 F and 265F. I fixed it removed it put the rest in and then when it cooled I pulled folded over pulled folded over and each result was the same.... So Im wondring theres got to be someone out there (I've tried other forums cant find a single person who has made it ) that has to have made it.
  13. This is the first time I made a holster and I would like to thank everyone who helped me out Mikepatterson, Twinoaks, MarkB, Broncobuster, and all the others out there who helped me out.
  14. Hockey Key Fob

    I have a friend of mine whose birthday is coming up soon and she loves Hockey so was wondering for those who are artistically inclined out there ( who also know about hockey since I dont really know much ) what a good pattern for a simple keyfob would be ?
  15. so you can us Acrylics then ? thanks.. I need to talk to someone about actually using an airbrush the thing doesnt come with instructions on using the tool itself adjusting this or that.. what is the piece that looks like a long needle. what exactly is the metal cup for etc etc.
