    Great tip, would you mind me asking what kind of pattern paper/material that is?

    Appropriate stitch length and pattern

    Thank you very much and I imagine it is a common question, this has helped a lot I’ll post a Picture soon showing my results
  7. hello all, I Was wondering if anyone had some tips on the best way to align the right stitch/pricking length with a pattern so it fits perfectly around. The main Issue I have is when making a wallet sometimes my pricking iron will pierce the t-slots in the side and having long stitches and short stitches which become noticeable. I know I should be adjusting the pattern to the stitch length I want but I’m still having difficulty. Any help would be greatly appreciated
  8. Hello all I’m getting rid of of some leathers that I don’t use during this confinement period and because of Corona it’s been quite hard making sales as I’m sure it’s impacted everyone in the leather-working community. So for sale I have 3 Nubuck skins from Tannerie masure in Grey, dark blue and Bordeaux they are around 12-13sqft each and a thickness of about 2-3mm I’m selling each hide of Nubuck for 45$ I have one remaining Brown calf skin lining used for the insides of shoes from tannerie Masure in Belgium. As you can see in the picture it has one hole in the middle and is around 13sqft. The flesh side is ultra soft and has a lovely suede feel and is being sold for 30$ then I have a selection of remaining vintage snake skins from an Italian tannerie dating around 1983-5 they are in grey, beige and a polished silver look. The grey and beige skins are 5€ each and the silver are 12€. i ship internationally from Belgium and if there are multiple purchase I can definitely work out a discount! any and all questions are welcome!

    Raised/padded leather,

    So here is my first attempt, I definitely think as @Alexis1234 said increasing the size of the top strap, so I wanted to edge paint but because the way the straps lined up I had to bevel and burnish to hide my mistakes. excuse my stitching in the pictures I rushed it to see how it would turn out !

    Raised/padded leather,

    Thank you terry I will definitely give this a go, Aleks I’ll try doing that to cut the exact measurements I want, only thing I’m worried about is with the bottom piece covered how to accurately cut the excess

    Raised/padded leather,

    Hello guys, I have been struggling to make a raise leather key ring it’s something I’ve been wanting to make for a while and I can’t seem to get it right. I’ve attached pictures of what I’m trying to go for and my current process is this; cutting two straps to match the keyring hardware (in my case 2cm) then adding a strip of leather in the middle of one panel much narrower than the 2cm strip and gluing on top the last strip then using a bone folder to form the leather and get that raised effect. my problem is that the top strap is too narrow once glued so i adjust the top layer to compensate but I still can’t get a straight line and my raised keyring looks all wonky and distorted. any help and way of making them would be a huge help!!
