  1. Hello, i am just starting out and i figured out real fast that this is a VERY expensive hobby starting up, but I've found and made some things to cut cost that i wanted to share with yal to help out, ill label whats free, and what i payed for and how much. 1. FREE... wine box from any liquor store.just ask them if they have one to give to you, they just throw them out. Makes a tool holder, storage box.. anything you want, just be creative. 2. CHEAP...Bar soap containers. 1$ at walmart... for holding all your small stuff you want to keep separate. Like the swivel knife and stamps. 3. CHEAP/FREE.Trash bags/walmart bags. Used to lay down under leather when dying. Be careful with walmart bags though, alot of times they'll have holes and not as flat. CHEAP... tool storage boxes.. bought a pack of 4 of them at walmart for 9 bucks. Good for keeping things organized. FREE/CHEAP... old white t-shirts.. instead of throwing away the old white work shirts. Keep them cut them up. Good for tons of stuff.. buffing towels, speading glue and dye, what ever you can think of. CHEAP... stanley box knife. Couple bucks at wal mart and you can get 50 blades for 5 bucks i believe. FREE/CHEAP... BOOKS! Scribd.com 8 bucks a month and you get a ton of books(including al stohlman)..you can also download them onto your phone, using your free 30 day trial(wink, wink).. and if you cancel membership before the month is over you dont pay a dime. Again (wink wink) its not letting me put up the pics so if you want to see them, or have any questions, send me a message and ill send them to you somehow! Addition! Ill add stuff as i think of them and do them... The internet/youtube!! I have already learned a ton of stuff off youtube, and when you have a better understanding of what your doing and how to do it you'll waste less products and save money... Tandy leathers offers a free beginner's class go take it!!
  2. Hello there , for a few days now I've been looking at these asian wallets (http://goodsjapan.com/leathercraft-book-mens-long-wallet-made-of-leather-diy-leather-crafting-1636-p.asp) , there's many Japanese books on them and whatnot but I don't read Japanese, I don't wanna deal with any of the shipping stuff and whatnot so do any of y'all know where I could find any books here in the US or just order off a more common site that have similar or patterns of the same style ? Maybe an ebook or in-store Thank y'all in advance! (:
  3. Help please! I'm trying to sell this saddle and need help identifying it. No maker's mark anywhere on it. I think it was bought for barrel racing purposes, given the seat, but am wondering if I'm wrong and it should be listed as a pleasure/trail saddle. Does anyone know its maker and/or can identify its proper classification?
  4. My brother wants me to make a belt for him but he is a very large person. I dont have any leather that is long enough to make a belt with a single strip of leather. How can i join two pieces while keeping the belt thin and reasonably nice looking?
  5. Hey yall. First of all, yall are amazing. Thank you for this resource! I make festy pouch belts and Im having the darnest time finding belt tips or rein tips for 1 3/4 " belt! So, can any of you point me to 45mm (1 3/4") brass rein or belt tips? thank you! -Patches www.laughingleather.com
  6. I'm in the process of making a bag and have the front and back panels dyed and got to thinking of the liner o want in it. I'm going to use a garment leather for this and was wondering how to attach it. The bag shape has a "dip" in the middle of the front and back panels and I'm wondering if a drop in liner would work around that curve. Or if I can bind a drop in liner or if I can even do a turned lining. I hope I can pick your brains for ideas on how to do this thanks.
  7. I am looking for a custom leather worker to do 300-350 (4"x 6") leather conference-style name badges. They can be embroidered/laser edged/embossed as long as they are finished by September of this year. If this interests you, please contact me at egraber@llenrock.com at your earliest convenience.
  8. Hi all Recently been at a show, a gent stood watching me carve a collar from start to finish, took nearly an hour, asked lots of questions, and at the end asked for three commissions for his sons, belts, two are easy one i am really stuggling with.... He wants a fantasy belt with dragons etc on. My initial thoughts where scenes from lotr or hobbit but i have discovered i cannot draw dragons, that small, belt is 40mm wide belt with 5 mm border. Ideally i want one breathing fire as each scene is to be framed with simple designs to reduce the cost of the belt and keep it in budget. I have done usual searches, but either to fiddly detail or not enough, just wondering if you fellow leatherworkers could help! Here is something similar to what i need! Thank you Pip
  9. Can anyone help my find out about this thread and where it could be purchased.? Its a synthetic thread for sure. Has a sheen to it. It is not bonded. Fibres appear to lie flat. Looks very silky in fact (but its not silk). Cone has the words M41 APOLLO BOND DRAB H672. The make is Barbour. Nothing comes up in google..pls help. thnx
  10. I am new to this site. Thank you for allowing me to join you. I am trying to get into leather bag making and need to purchase an industrial machine. I have decided on the Consew. Can anyone tell me what is the difference between the 206RB-5 and the Consew P1206RB? Which one would you recommend for bag making? I really appreciate as much feedback as you are willing to give.
  11. lately ive been looking at these and theyre very nice looking in my opinion. i was wondering if (1) this sort of wallet has a specific style and name ? and (2) around what would be the dimensions? (3) does anyone know where i could find any sort of pattern for this ?" thank you

(3) does anyone know where i could find any sort of pattern for this ?" i know i can just go and buy the wallet but that wouldnt be as satisfying as making it (i hope to speak for many of us leatherworkers) thank you

  16. Hello All, I've started doing more shows and fairs and I always struggle with displaying my belts... I was wondering if anyone had any stands that they use and rely on... something that makes it easy for customers to select the items they can hang and look nice. All help welcome!! Thank you Nu
  17. So I have no idea why this is happening, it was coated with waterstain and then acrylic resolene for the finish.I put a mild bend to it and it cracked and split. I really need some help with this please!!
  18. Hi All I am having some difficulty with a lego belt, ie carving lego blocks onto a belt. I just cannot get them to look right, either they look puffy or just wrong. Please help! Pip
  19. I think i will have a lot of very basic questions to start out??? Not sure if this is the right area. I want to practice with a swivel knife, but dont want to waste any tool leather, as i dont have any scrap yet, i do have loads of split leather, can i use this to practice on? Oh and loads of bags for full grain old leather scavanged from a leather couch. Thanks.
  20. So I acquired a singer 16-188 recently and I figured out how to thread it and I am pretty sure that I've got the top thread done correctly, the bobbin I'm not so sure about. I think I have got it correct but when I go to sew, it just tries and tries and tries but the bobbin thread just sits there and never gets picked up by the needle. Also the (I'm new to machine sewing so forgive me for my more than likely incorrect terminology.) feeder, the little guy with teeth that pulls the material along, isn't doing its job correctly and it's almost like the material wants to feed backwards from back to front?? Also I'm sure I don't have the correct needle or thread so I'd take any advice ya got for me on getting this old machine running. oh and for the time being I am using this machine without a motor, and just turning it to hand. Thanks in advance
  21. Hello all, I'm attempting to taper a collar for a customer, but as I've never done it before my first couple attempts were a disaster- uneven and ugly. Does anyone have any tips on how to taper? Tools I should be using? Thank you!
  22. My teflon coated glue pot with brush was left unused for over a year and is now stuck shut. Anyone have any ideas on how to "un-stuck" it? Thanks
  23. Hi everyone I'm a long time lurker, and almost always find my answers with out posting. You guys are great with all the support you put out there. I've found an old Consew 225 from a local guy who used it to do some upholstery work. I would be looking to use it as my first machine. I do a lot of wallets with about 4oz liners and more like 5-7 oz tooled outers, but have been wanting to be able to stich some guitar straps, maybe even a belt. I imagine that may be stretching it. As far as I know its just a clutch motor, and I may need to make some upgrades but I believe I can get it somewhere between 2 and 300$ and I can see it run before I buy? Do any of you all have any experience or pointers before I pull the trigger. I think it may be a little underpowered, but with some upgrades I think it may work? I've considered doing some lighter bag type Thanks all!
  24. I am planning on making a breast collar for my 4-H project this year. I made one last year but it was a very simple style. I want something with a little bit more flare this year and I cannot seem to find a single pattern on a different style of breast collar.
  25. My name is Kris, I am 24years old ((born1991)) I live with my sister, and great aunt and uncle, I live in Sierra Vista AZ my zip is 85650 but the city zip is 85635, I am currently unemploied, I still can not Drive as life currently has not permitted me to aquire that skill yet ((fancy way of saying I have not had the time to even get my permit.....great uncles a freaking slave driver.)) but I'm a hard worker with a few eccentricities, if you can look past them or ignore or even maybe accept them I'm sure we could actully grow to be good friends! I need a job close to home, preferabbly in this city but IF needed or availble or even offered I have no issues with moving in, or moving closer. I need the job so that I can earn money with out actully working ((after all, if you are doing what you love/enjoy then you never work a day in your life!)) and it will even enable me to move out at some point. please call or text me at 520-559-0095 if you would like to talk and possibly even meet up. and if your currious or are willing to maybe see if you can look past, ignore or possibly accept my eccentricities don't be afraid to ask about them!
