    Belt Bag

    Belt Bag/Hip Bag. I made this from templates and instructions from Fischer Workshops. First attempt at anything like this. Will call this a prototype and see what I can improve on the second go around. First off this leather is really not very nice so the edges are not crisp at all. But on wards!

    Which needles for hand stitching

    The number system is wacky. Just make sure that the package is marked 002. And it is correct.

    I am using some "found" leather that is gosh been around for 15 years. Funny I did not notice the cracking till I took the pics. I want to use this leather up though. So I am trying to slather on a bunch of neetsfoot oil before any hard bending. I like it, but maybe not politically correct these days. OH well............

    Gun Leather & stuff

    Both great. I like the second one. Simple but effective design.

    Photos with my new light box

    I bought one as well and really like it. I am still playing around with camera settings to try to get it optimized.
  9. Just finished this from a pattern from Fischer Workshops. He has great content on You Tube and really nice patterns and templates.
  10. I bought some of the thread similar to the Amazon post as above. I make mainly small pouches and knife sheaths. The stuff works perfectly fine in my opinion.

    Dye before burnishing?

    This is the same method I use. Always seems like good results. I like the final with beeswax, it softens and blends the color of the edges in my opinion.

    Which needles for hand stitching

    Started also using the JJ 002 and what a huge difference. I too made the mistake at first of buying the JJ #2 size!
