  1. Thank for the reply! What I'm left with is basically the shoulder size panel. It's thick stuff so not suited for what you've listed. I cut a bunch of it for coasters but I have SOOO much it's kind of a burden. lol It's Wicket & Craig bridle leather (good stuff!)
  2. Hello! I need some help with ideas! I make belts out of 10/12 ounce bridle but when I buy a side I always cut it down to about 55 inches in length. I'm left with a good portion of the hide which I use to make small strap items. My problem is the leftovers are starting to stack up and don't know what to make out of these larger panels. I can only make so many key fobs. In short, what else could I make? I need ideas! Thanks in advance.
  3. Thanks all! I only made three of these and they sold out the same evening I posted them. Gotta love that! Time to make more.
  4. Hi all, Here’s a clutch wallet I made the other day. The sunflowers were laser engraved then painted with leather dyes.
  5. Thanks for the reply! My apologies, I think I was overthinking this. So my screws have domed caps and should closely match the concave underside of the coin and make for a solid bond. I probably need shorter screws too if I’m just putting these on thinner pieces like a wallet as mine are .25”.
  6. Thank you! It’s both machine and hand stitched. The main body done on my Cobra Class 4, the handle and D-ring tabs are hand stitched. Thanks! Yeah I’ll need to hunt this one down in a couple of months to see how it’s looking.
  7. Thank you for the instructions on this! I’ve been thinking about making coin conchos. One question: where do you find the rivet snap tubes without the cap? I’d like to use Chicago screws as well but I have no clue where to find just the female end without a base.
  8. Thank you! I haven't looked but you night be a blessing to score a copy of CS6 off eBay or something. Thanks! Thank you! You're welcome for the pattern. Please post your sheath too, I'd love to see it!
  9. I find it easy to use, but I’ve also been using it for close to 25 years. There are a lot of tutorials out there you should check out. It’s great software.
  10. Yes, I drew the pattern in illustrator after tracing the blade. The PDF I included up there contains vector lines if you’d like to lase it too.
  11. That’s my custom Leather Wranglers SK-V with pyrographed artwork by Britt Nantz. It has my initials on one side and Celtic hounds on the other.
  12. Finally found some time to make a sheath for my LW round knife. Hot Tip: I like using Tandy’s black All-In-One for antiquing some things. It’s a terrible dye but a great antique! Brush it on and when dry it kind of wipes off here and there when I apply Resolene to seal. It gives it a weathered look that I was going for here. I also added a PDF of the pattern I made for this morning f you’d like to make yourself one. The strap I made a little longer than needed so placement can be how you like it to be. Enjoy!

  13. That is a beautiful piece for sure. I love the colors and especially the brogue on the corners.
