  1. Rivets will never replace a great hand sewn product. You have made a really nice bag and am sure you will make fine saddlebags when you get to it. I myself have built hundreds of motorcycle tool bags and saddlebags and all have been hand sewn or laced. I usually use harness weight leather for the large bags.
  2. going way back for this one StitchingHorse.pdf
  3. I use a 10 ton hydraulic press with two 12 inch square metal plates one inch thick.............put the stamp between them and get great results at about 4,000 lbs
  4. I spent years building the shop I have............buying my tools and equipment and never would dare to ask fellow crafters to fund the building of any of it. Shame on you.
  5. Wonderful work.....I also like to hand sew the majority of my projects. The hand print tag as fab!
  6. like the western rustic look really good.............I would think hand sewing with heavier waxed thread would enhance the look
