    First Purse

    Thanks for pointing that out! I had not noticed or thought about it. I will be more aware when I do the next one. This is why I like to show other leather crafters my efforts, often they will notice details I overlooked. It's all part of the learning process.

    Very nice, what color - brand of dye did you use?

    Hand stitched, with the exception of the strap.

    First Purse

    I just finished my first purse, which was a gift for my wife. The leather is veg - tan 4-5 oz, with embossed crocodile pattern and the color is Tandy - Eco-Flo stain ( Bordeaux). The inside has eight card slots and a zippered compartment. Dimensions are approx. 9.5" x 5.5" x 2.5" deep.
  5. Just finished this long wallet. Outer shell is crocodile embossed 5 oz veg tan. Insides are 2-3 oz veg tan and the dye is Fiebings black
  6. Very nice! What is the collar around the handle for? I thought it might protect the handle if the head missed the target but the blade is so large you probably couldn't miss.
  7. Beautiful work, I love the lining and the edge finishing.

    Interesting design, are the side separate with a spline on both sides? It looks like that might be easier than rolling it over from one piece..
  9. It is hand stitched.
  10. After a year or so of making key fobs, wallets, bookmarks, coin purses etc. I decided to take the plunge and loose my " gusset virginity" as a first step towards making a hand bag. So my first gusseted project was a belt pouch. It turned out no too bad ( in my opinion) and sewing in the gusset was not as hard as I thought it would be. The leather I used was Tandy 5 oz. veg tan and the color is Tandy Eco-Flo Water stain Tan.

    I didn't use an airbrush, the dye was applied with a cloth pad. One thing I like about the embossed veg tan leathers is that you don't get the visible streaking and blotching you sometimes get with the plain veg tans.

    Thanks battlemunky, my stitching is a work in progress.
  13. This is a bi-fold wallet I just finished. It is 5-6oz veg tan crocodile print. The color is Tandy Eco-Flo Stain in medium brown.
  14. I'll take that as a compliment Ferg, but as you can see in the close up my carving is far less than perfect. Yes, it fits fairly snug. My phone is in an Otter Box and I wrapped it in Saran wrap and wet molded the leather for shape and fit.
  15. Here is a holster I made for my Iphone. I used 5 oz Veg Tan. The carving is from a West Coast Native sketch of a wolf.
