Hello from Belgrade

Recommended Posts

I am here for a while but not posting yet, spend a lot of time to learn and practice with leather. Very kind people here share very useful information and I can find a lot of answers about everything and I am very thankful for that. My specialty is bracelets and different kind of leather custom accessories such as watch straps, waist bags,dog collars etc. 

This is some works I made before and appreciate your opinion about that.

Welcome Royal - you do good work!  Look forward to seeing more of your projects.  

(PS - always nice to know what leather, thread, finish and machine, if any, you use in your projects!)

Thank you. I am limited here with quality materials and tools because we haven't suppliers for leatherwork (dyes,finish etc) so I started my work with tools I made by myself and it is also good  experience.For improving my work must import better quality. This products are all hand stitched, I have also nice Singer 45k in good condition but still have  problems with some parts so waiting to fix that.

Very nice work, I particularly like the nice clean contrasty stitching; slightly jealous of that. I'd also like to see some of your home made tools as well if you'd be willing,

Well done, great work.

Love the work and of course would love to see these tools everyone is talking about. What is the first case for? Any particular item?  It reminds me of my Dad's Sam Browne belt. It looks good. Nice work!

Welcome from NE Texas!  Like everyone else, I admire your ability to hand stitch with machine-like precision.  Beautiful work!

Sorry for very very late answer. You will see procedure from photos. dimensions: straps-12-15mm wide, min.25cm long, thicknes 1.2-1.4mm , 11 holes-diam.-5 or 6mm.When you assembly straps roll it on the round edge of table to set braiding evenly. With practise you will find best measures for you.For ends you can put snaps or sam brown studs.Happy work.

Looking at your workshop pics I just had an idea, you could use one of those magnetic knife holders for kitchen knives, fasten it to the wall and voila - instant tool holder.

I have them in the kitchen and they are super handy, easy to take the knife and easy to place back. They should come cheap, I think you can even find them in Chinese goods stores.

They would work only on metal tools, not so sure how it would work with awls and such.

thanks for the pictures of the straps. It looks like a type of bleed knot, I've only done them with slots, not round holes, but I'll have to try that.
