    My first bag

    That’s an ambitious project, @GJM! Looks like you pulled it off quite nicely. What’s the leather?

    Irish theme knife sheath

    Really nice work. BUT: house rules, let's see the knife outside the sheath too!

    Black watch strap with off-white stitching

    Nope! Keep them coming - love seeing your stuff.

    Check? Check!

    Nice job! That’s a fun first project, I’m sure it will be quite the attention getter. Are you planning to stitch it onto something, or are the holes decorative?

  7. That is sharp. Awesome attention to detail again. I’ve loved seeing your stuff here lately, keep posting the inspiration!

    How to make ruler more grippy

    I bought one of those triangular profile engineering rulers thinking it would be nice and stiff for shorter cuts on my work table. It’s sturdy alright, but pushing down on it is murder on the hands with it always having a sharp edge pointing up. Not worth it.
  12. What a cool project. Nice idea, nice execution.

    Input on Weights for Laptop Bag

    Subscribing to hear others’ feedback too. I know I always tend to mistrust the leather and think it needs to be thicker than it actually does.
  14. This is great. I’ve seen similar on Pinterest and been interested to try one. I wonder if the service life could be extended by making the top strap ‘T’ shaped or triangle shaped to give it a little more room to be held down by stitches. @TheCyberwolfe which seam failed first? I’m assuming the top one.
  15. Others here can stitch circles around me, but it looks to me as though there must be something you’re doing that’s not always the same from stitch to stitch - some little over/under difference or needle through the hole in different relation to the threads, etc. Those last 5 stitches have that nice diagonal look to them. I’d suggest punching a couple of long lines in some scrap and really going at it to get the look you want on both sides and then engrain that exact motion into your memory 100%. I like the phone case, that’s a cool way to get a finger ring and still be able to slip the phone into a pocket.
