  1. That thread color really compliments it well. Looks great!
  2. Hi all, I finally got some bottles of this (Saddle Tan and Medium Brown) to try. So far I've only tried it on a few stamped pieces as a test but it seems to work really well and it produces a nice rich color in the leather like I've been getting with Tandy Eco Flo products. It's thinner that the Eco Flo product so it was a little easier to work into crevices, but otherwise it seems to work just like Eco Flo. I need to try a little more testing with it, like trying it on a floral design, but so far I'm giving it a thumbs up.
  3. I use pre waxed polyester cord from Maine Thread. It's good quality and comes in many different colors and isn't very expensive. I think it's a good starting place for getting good at hand sewing.
  4. I like your painting, especially the highlights you added to the rose petals. It gives them more depth.
  5. I'd have to agree with Dwight. Those marks are probably from variations in the dye concentration on the sponge.
  6. Hello. It's possible there was some sort of surface coating or contamination that caused that. Do you use anything to clean the leather surface before dyeing?
  7. That feather looks great. It makes it a really nice wallet.
  8. @garyplI've got a Leatherwrangler round knife as well and wouldn't need anything else. Terry makes great knives and I've thought about purchasing something from him in the past but my Leatherwrangles one is always going to be my go to tool. I sure hope Terry can recover though and get back to production. He makes excellent knives!
  9. I think you did very well. The edges look great and the overall fit and finish looks very professional. I do see a couple of places the stitches look a little off but overall it looks very good.
  10. That bag really looks nice! Was the temple laser engraved? I love the tri-weave border.
  11. Great idea! Thanks for sharing @pete!
