  1. @Retswerb @Tugadude @LeatherLegion thanks for the kind words guys!
  2. @TugadudeYes it is dark brown! I was trying to attach the pics earlier but they were flipped for some reason...
  3. What do you guys think? This wallet was adapted from Jonbradyleather’s design. More pictures at https://Instagram.com/kattanleather
  4. Hey guys. I have a YouTube channel to showcase how I make leather wallets. Please watch and critique / comment on any aspect of this video. It would really help me out if you could like, subscribe and leave a comment or question on YouTube. Thanks!
  5. @BentleyLeather I think it’s too early. I’m sure it’ll pick up a bit after I receive my letter set.
  6. @JayEhl Thanks for the feedback. I agree, the scene with the needle storage case in particular was blurry. I’ll keep that in mind for next time. Definitely get an alphabet set when you’re ready. It’s kind of expensive but it will pay for itself in the long run Good luck!!
  7. Yes you should totally get a logo stamp and I would 100% recommend an alphabet set. A lot of people want an embossed name/initials on Etsy. I lost a lot of business because I had this cheap plastic stamp from rmleathersupply that I couldn’t t use. I had to do one letter at a time (it was a nightmare trying to line up names perfectly) and eventually it warped from hammering. I just ordered a brass alphabet set from Hex n’ Hit A heat press would be amazing. Dream Factory makes a good one (also a clicker press) but it’s expensive. You can use an arbor press with a heat gun instead if you want a cheaper solution
  8. @BentleyLeather Your products look good. I’m pretty sure you’d be able to do it. Do you currently sell your products? What platform do you use? By the way you should post your videos on reddit and facebook groups to get more views.
  9. @battlemunky @Danne Thanks guys. I have all kinds of glue applicators including a small one like in the picture; that’s what I normally use. I decided to try a disposable foam brush because it sounds nice when you brush it against the leather (ASMR sound). I get 6 of them for $1 from the dollar store, so it’s not a huge deal if I throw it out after I’m done making my video.
  10. Thanks Bryan! I’m interested in turning this whole leather craft thing into a business. That’s why I started doing YouTube videos. I figured it would generate more sales and give me a slight edge...I’ve noticed an increase in ETSY traffic but not sales. I guess it takes time. What’s your goal? I’m trying to understand the algorithm as well. My views are drawing ~ 2 mins of watch time, which is about 66% of my video length (I don’t think the algorithm cares about % watch time as much as the actual mins though...so YouTube should be ranking your videos a bit higher...)
  11. Thanks for the kind words Alex! I agree, I don’t like music in the background and much prefer the sound of tools, leather etc.
  12. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGumgagJrN0 Hey guys. I worked really hard to make this video. If you like what you see, please consider leaving a comment on YOUTUBE / hitting the like and subscribe button. It would really help me out as I’m trying to grow my business. I want to keep improving so please feel free to critique. Ask me any questions. Thank you!!
  13. Hey guys, I’d like to get a stitch awl and was wondering, what size blade should I get? I’m considering a palosanto scratch awl to go with my Sinabrocks pricking irons. Sinabrocks have 2.2 mm teeth so I thought it would be best to get the scratch awl with a 2.2 mm wide blade. I wonder if I should get a smaller size awl? I’m worried that if I don’t drive the awl in perfectly straight everytimr, that I might make the stitch holes bigger? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!!
