    @zuludog thanks, will have a look on YouTube. Going to try out the leather mat I made for punching, otherwise magazine is good idea.

    Yes, it keeps my earphones tidy and easy to find. Thank you, I couldn't resist buying a paws stamp. I used saddle stitch and replaced almost all the stitching. Yes, a lot of stitches, good practice! I used a stitching pony which my husband made for me. Thank you Toxo

    Hello from Auckland NZ

    Hi there! I have been interested in leathercraft for some time now but what really got me started was when the country went into lockdown. That was my opportunity to start a new craft and I wasted no time ordering leather and some of the basic tools. I have made some little items which I have hand sewn - have attached first item I made. I also restored a broken old leather messenger bag, having to replace all the stitching since it was rotten. I just made my own punching board out of some scrap leather. Not sure if it is thick enough (8mm) but I had to make a plan since the poly board I was using wasn't suitable and has damaged my awl. I have ordered some stitching chisels, so really looking forward to receiving them!
