  1. In my wallets I add a card that says; "Thank you for your purchase. My mother always told that it's bad luck to give someone an empty wallet. May this lucky dollar bill bring you good fortune." I add a dollar bill and write Lucky Dollar on the back.

  3. A lot of people who have used Fil au Chinois thread have complained about the quality going down and a large number of them have switched to Meisi Superfine for it's better quality control. And then there's Meisi Xiange which is a polyester thread that's gaining in popularity because the colors look like those of linen thread. I've used Meisi Xiange but I prefer Vinymo MBT.
  4. What do you want to make, what's your budget and how serious are you? Like Danne said, tools for a holster would be different than for making a watch strap.
  5. Do you use Velodon or some sort of non stretch material between the layers?
  6. The brand is fine if that's what you want. But there may be potential buyers that will not buy because of it. I'm on other forums of both makers and buyers and requests for unbranded items are not uncommon. Some makers oblige and those that don't lose a sale. In the end, it doesn't matter what anyone here here thinks--it's up to you and the buyer.
  7. Some of you guys are confusing a clicker die with the word dye. A die cuts while dye colors.

  9. The T-pockets ought to be skived thinly to eliminate bulk. If you go with what you have drawn, your cards will teeter totter because it's so narrow. You'll still have a bulge but now only narrower. Skive is the way. You have some sort of V-pocket going on there which will make it bulkier. I suggest a T-pocket. It has "ears" which instead of overlapping, they sit flush with each other along the stitch line. You would still want to skive though.
  10. For a good one there's Barry King and Ron's Tools. Both in USA.
  11. I'm guessing you mean skive? Sure you can skive veg tan. I do it all the time.
  12. Is the one on the right the front, and the other the back? With a saddle stitch, the front side is slanted from the 10 o:clock position to 4 o:clock. Your one on the left is opposite--8 to 2.
  13. I've heard of some folks using double sided tape to hold it down. So I've "heard".
  14. This is the pattern I use. The stitching spacing is at 3mm.
