  1. Thanks! Yes, the belt loop goes all the way down, so that the bottom rivet is holding 3 layers together. There's a second rivet on the inside, closer to the top edge, holding the inside of the loop and the back of the sheath together.
  2. Yep, there's a welt in there. Without it it would be a much faster job, but it makes for a much more reliable (and safer) hold. Unfortunately, I am yet to find a convenient and quick way of reliably punching through 3 layers of leather and being able to remove the chisel with ease.
  3. Thanks all! Yes, I like the way it came out too I am not sure what the weight is, I never weighed it. Obviously, when full of equipment, it is a hefty thing. Empty - not too bad for me. Mileage may vary. I use it on my photo drives, so I rarely have to carry it around, it is mostly in the car, packed full of photo equipment. Here's the link to the pattern, if anyone's tempted: https://www.etsy.com/listing/676778881/bag-pattern-pdf-download-leather-diy?ref=shop_home_active_22&pro=1
  4. Pretty happy with this one... Followed Tony's pattern religiously and came up with this. A lot of punching and stitching, but the results do not disappoint!
  5. A friend of mine made a hunting knife, but had no sheath for it. So I decided to try my hand, killing two birds with one stone - make a sheath for a friend and learn in the process. Since he had already used this knife on a deer hunt, I put a deer stamp along with his initials on it. I was pretty pleased with myself, considering this was a first. Youtube rules!
  6. Great-looking bag! I like the design and the distressed surface feel. Well done!
  7. My first post here, and my first serious project. Had no idea what to do, how to go about it, and more importantly - what I wanted. Not without mistakes, but I figured it all out in the process and learned. Ready for more Leather camera bag by Artem, on Flickr
