    Looking at the Le Provo site in their natural veg-tan section, would this also be the right sort of thing? (a bit cheaper!).


    This may or may not be of some use to you but all of the following are done with Le Prevo’s 1.8mm shoulder with the exception of the bifolds the outer is 1.8mm the inners are with le Prevo’s veg Tan Goat.

    All except one dyed with Feibings dyes

    Really like your design and the craftsmanship. Well done! Also, thanks for the details on the SPI,  pricking irons and stitching material. Thanks for asking the questions MarkCdub. Was thinking the same. 

    BTW stormcrow, was your deer skin supplier in the UK? Thanks 

    Thanks, yes the wild deerskin is from a UK company A.A. Crack it is labelled as "Wild Deerskin - Rustic Tan 1.4 - 1.6mm but the piece I used for this is a little thicker at 1.8mm

    Thanks harry, but they will not let me order without a vat number and being a hobby i dont have one

    Any other good makes with Royal Blue edge 

    I've had 3 orders from Gardini in june and july 2018 and I don't have a vat number I cant remember them asking for one maybe if they did I would have just ignored it.

    That's a nice bag, good job.

    What are the little straps (like the one you put your mark on) for? Just structural or is there another purpose?

    Thanks, the straps at the top of the gusset is something I copied from some other bags I’ve seen (bag review). The intention is to prevent the stitching at the top from being unduly stretched if the bag is overfilled. Not sure how practical it is but I thought I’d try it out seeing as I’m just learning how to do bags.

  6. Some photos of my 3rd go at making a bag, I still need to do a strap for it though. I did make one but I wasn't happy with the quality of the leather strap blank I got from ebay!! so I've just bought some better leather to do another.

    I began this ages ago but I kept putting off doing it as I have limited work space and limited time so I kept doing smaller projects instead. I recently bought some Horween leather that I want to use for a bag but I decided I couldn't begin that till I had finished this one which helped to motivate me to finish.

    The bag was done to fit my old 15" laptop so its quite a big bag, my next one will probably be for a smaller laptop.

    Leather is hand dyed veg tan, fiebing british tan and medium brown. stitched with tiger thread (.6mm) I'd have preferred to have used some some of my current favourite thread yue fung waxed linen but I actually started this bag about 6 months ago which was before I discovered yue fung so I had to continue with the tiger thread. Hopefully my next one won't take so long to do :)

    Thanks Stormcrow,

    All of the IT triggers point to their domain providers in Canada.

    From my understanding of UK sales sites, they seem to be lacking in basic details.

    It's a shame as it would be great to have more suppliers in the UK.

    If you have a receipt with contact details please pm me as I like the look of one of the tools.

    Thank you


    Sorry I’ve checked but I don’t have any receipts .

  8. As far as I know they are UK based as I've probably ordered from them about 5/6 times now and they have always delivered to me in UK in about 2 days.

    I've mainly been ordering Yue Fung threads but I recently ordered their brass utility knife with D2 steel blade and I am extremely happy with it, I prefer it to my Indispensable knife much more comfortable in my hand and the blade is excellent quality too way better than the Tina blades I have for my Indispensable.
