  1. It came out great and I very much appreciate the support. I presume you'll be taking a well deserved break for your hands. I surely did
  2. Haven't posted for some time but here is some of our latest work. We used some soft .8 mm goatskin and stuffed it with a pillow. How do you like it ?
  3. As part of our commitment to making things easier for our community, we made a bag where the knots needn't be tooled but cut and stitched instead. I once made a wallet full of Celtic motifs and it took me two days just to tool the cover whereas the same time was required for this bag to be constructed bottom up. Well perhaps the result is not as good as could have were it tooled but I think it's satisfying nonetheless. The process of making it was captured here and the pattern can be found along with many other project on our website. Thanks for the time!
  4. I second this. I use Inkscape for patterns and all of the graphics I need like logos, watermarks etc... I find it a really pity that people avoid it in favor of AI whose interface is less intuitive and slows you down. I get it, it's meant to serve as a language in a sense so that it can continue to be industry standard but for us non professionals I think we're paying for something we don't benefit from. I think Inkscape is more similar to Corel Draw which I never used but which had I to, I'd take instead of AI at any time due to its one time payment option. I must admit that AI is faster and works better on Macs but you'll hardly notice differences in performance if you'll not be doing advanced graphic design. Lastly, I think people tried it on Windows where it sort of lacks in performance almost the same as it does on Mac OS ( slow canvas rendering, zooming and other issues ) but were you to try it on Linux ( which is also free ) its performance might impress you.
  5. Hi! We've been at it again and this is what came out. It's made out of 3 oz veg tan and stuffed with a full polyester pillow. Everything is hand stitched and dyed just as you like it. We have a video for it if you'd like to take a look and of course the pattern which can be found at our website.
  6. If you'll make this one first then the egg will seem much easier so perhaps you should build them the other way around. They're both fun projects and you should be prepared to part with them quickly after finishing. We already had several offers for ours. I guess we're accustomed to declining after we resisted selling the facehugger mask several times. Thank you very much for supporting our work and we really hope you'll be having fun.
  7. Thank you! It really was a lot of stitching but It made everything we made so far much much easier. I guess that's how one pushes oneself.
  8. Hello everyone! We've been busy lately and this is what we have to show for it. Quite some work went into this project and you can watch it being made here. Pattern, photos and more information here
  9. Who says an egg can only be cooked or laid and not be carried on your back while turning heads at the mall ? For those unacquainted with the Alien franchise, this is the egg that spawns the facehugger, made into a backpack. For everyone else who already made the mask, this is a must have accessory and about the same amount of work. The pattern and more info here
  10. Hello everyone! This is our latest bag pattern meant to hold laptops and large books. It's designed with the mind of holding a Mac in the middle sleeve and a 15 inch laptop in one of the other compartments. The two front pockets can fit phones, chargers, a mouse or any other accessories. We used vegetable tanned leather of which about one square meter went in. The pattern and more info can be found on our website along with the rest of our stuff. Happy new year!
  11. The whiter is stuffed and made out of pre dyed 3 - 5 oz while the other one is hollow 5 - 6 oz veg tan hand dyed. It was requested by a very nice lady who has a knack for penguins and received a lot of love from kids. The pattern is in the shop. PS: Don't mind the title lol
