  1. This is my take on a traditional dual strap satchel. I used Horween's Chromexcel, Bucanneer and Casco horse front. The bag is hand stitched with brass and copper rivets and the straps were sewn on my CB3200. It has a removable pouch that can fit small items or a small tablet.
  2. This my first project of handmade and fully handstitched bridle leather bag . It took me almost couple of months to make patterns on auto cad and printing them to make all the parts . Even shoulder strap is also hand stitched. Please let me know what you think !!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. This is my first leather backpack I made from 3-4oz garment grade & soft top grain upholstery leather, with each zipper pouch having a pocket inside. I used my Tacsew T-111 and my Cobra class 4 for the sewing, and brass rivets for reinforcement. 3/16" foam sheets for the padding in the back area, and the straps. I have thick skin so feel free to point out anything you see I can approve on! Thank you for checking it out
  4. I work with used footballs. I am a HS football coach and stumbled my way into making leather wallets out of used footballs for gifts for our graduating seniors. Fell in love with the craft have started expanding what I do. I was recently asked by a fellow coach to make a messenger style bag out of a bunch of old footballs. So my first obstacle that I am encountering in the planning phase is how to make larger panels out of a bunch of small football panels. My initial thought is to take each panel of the football and cut it down to a square or rectangle and then attach it to another panel. Then I would end up with a larger panel that I could cut to my measurements. Anybody have any experience doing something like this. Attaching pieces of leather together to get a larger working surface. Any suggestions, tips, help, etc.
  5. Hey! So I've been having this problem with my bag flaps curling around after stitching. The weight of my leather is like a garment leather with a little stretch. I'm trying to make a bag flap for my sling bags and I do want the stitches to be around the edges. I'm getting that curling effect though. I know it's because the machine is pulling the thread tight and since the leather has a little stretch, that is what is causing it. So I guess I'm asking: What can I do about it? How can I make it appear less curled? Should I layer the flap with two layers of the leather? Should I do a double layer with a bag stiffener into the edges? Thanks in advance to anyone who has any ideas.
  6. Back before I owned a leather sewing machine I had dreamed up a few designs with the gusset seam as shown below in the photos (not this same bag, but just the seam on it). Once I got my first machine I quickly realized this style of seam did not appear to be possible using a sewing machine. It is not your typical seam, just an overlap of leather. I know it is possible to do this by hand stitching, but I had seen photos of this same bag in brown with what looked like a backtacking that a machine would have done. Is there a way to machine sew this style of seam I am just not thinking of (a patcher could do it possibly, but I have a regular cylinder arm and a flatbed consew)?
  7. New Bag I finished for a customer. Its not for everyone, but he asked for it and it came out nice I think. False buckle with parachute clip behind buckle strap. So buckle is secured but it quick releases which is cool.
  8. Hey fellas, I'd need some advice on how to sew in a lining/interior into this particular bag I'm currently making. The problem I'm having is that i chose not to sew the bag inside out but I went for visible edges on the bottom pannel. The bag has a long zipper that runs from side to side almost to the bottom (currently only taped on the pieces with double sided tape). The bag doesen't have a side panel but the front piece wraps around the corner of the bottom and meets up in the middle with the other piece. How should I go about sewing it up together with interior and all? I got a bit stuck as this is after all my first real bag (I've only made a simple turned unlined messenger bag) and I don't want to mess it up. Should i sew the interior with inner gussets and pockets together like a separate bag, insert it and then sew it along the zipper? Or line the pieces, sew on the bottom panel and then sew in the gussets + inner pocket? Here are some sketches and pictures of what i'm making: An exloded wireframe view of how i'm planning to put this piece together
  9. Have you ever noticed that every now and then when you’re more observant to the world around you, you see more of what people are doing? You see how they look, the style of their clothes, the amount of cleavage their clothes show, what kind of bag they have and what it’s made of. You see the style of shoes they are wearing and the condition they’re in, the colors of their clothes can tell you about the mood they might be in and so on. These things give us a clearer notion or feeling of their current state of mind, attitude and possibly their deeper character. Some of these things will change and vary from day to day and time to time. Like a t-shirt with a message on it won’t be worn the next day, or a hair style today might change in the next coming weeks, shoes change on a daily basis. But some things won’t change for a very long period of time, like a genuine distressed leather bag. And it’s these things that could be considered an extension of a person’s character. These things are usually of sentimental value, mostly because they have endured throughout the years and have been with you on many adventures. In many ways the style, fashion, material and color of a bag can give others a sense and feel of the kind of person you might be. Many of us have different intentions when we buy a new bag. Many times we want to impress our friends or co-workers, or we simply need a bag that is most suitable for our line of work or lifestyle. Some of us want to feel like we are more than we actually feel we are, so we buy a bag that reflects a romantic or ideal vision of ourselves. Some of us buy a bag because it simply looks good or goes well with the tone of our skin. Some of us are drawn to a bag because it gives us a sense of security or makes us feel more confident. And then there are those of us that are genuinely completely ecstatic about a particular bag. In the end, we buy the bag that we like, not just to look at, but to use, to carry and to show the world who we are. They personify who we are and who we hope to be, almost as if they are a piece of the puzzle to our characters. Just as every genuine leather bag is unique, so is every person who chooses one. They are an extension of our unique characters. By Noah Nichols Grittyrustic

  13. Hello everyone. I just completed my first brifcase. Costructive criticism welcome. Link to more photos: http://imgur.com/a/QWL3B. Thanks,Jack.
  14. Hello everyone, My first post ever. I am very new to leather crafting, so forgive me I do not speak mechanic language. I have decided to join this forums after reading Wizcrafts's The Type Of Sewing Machine You Need To Sew Leather I learnt a lot from it but I cannot make up my mind which machine that will be suitable for me. Here is my situation: I am sewing leather bag, purse, clutch bags, tote bags etc, using 1-5oz leather with fabric so about 1/4" including the fabric lining for the body, about 3/8" max for straps/handle/thick joints I use veg tanned top grain leather (not sure if that makes any difference to picking a machine?) I am based in Ireland so I have very limited options/choices available to consider I have decided a cylinder arm, walking foot with compound feed will be good for my needs, so I have ruled out any flat bed or post arm machines. I am seeking your advice/opinion on the following machines, one of which I will (hopefully) end up buying: Durkopp Adler 669 - 180010 E3 Durkopp Adler 69 / 069 subclass unknown (Used) perhaps you can tell by this photo? It was listed with 6 months warranty. Highlead GC2698-1BN Highlead GC2268 Consew 277R-3 Juki TSC-441 Juki DSC-244 / DSC-245 / DSC-246 - I don't know what the differences between these three are?? They have the same info on seller's website Juki LS-1341 Can you please let me know what you think about the above and based on my requirements and which would you prefer to go with if it was you? And if not to much to ask, can you also help me with the following questions: what machine needle and thread size is suitable for stitching double layers of veg tanned 4-5oz leather straps/handle? what needle and thread size is best for single layer veg tanned 4-5oz with medium weight fabric? I have been hand stitching and as much as I enjoy hand stitching I would love to get the basic putting the pieces together done quicker on a machine. Many thanks in advance.
  15. Had nothing to do this morning so I decided to make a little belt pouch. Took a grooving tool and made the designs in the face and sides, I thought it looked nice and might do it elsewhere.
  16. Just finished this woman's hand bag for a friend to give to his wife for their anniversary. This entire bag is sewn by hand, the letter "L" is burned and stained.
  17. Remember the Bison hunting bag? I felt the need to add something on the right side so I did. Tell me what you think and don't worry I have thick skin, I can take it.
  18. I thought I would add a full pocket on the inside of the flap and a carrier for a water bottle.
  19. I made this bag from a spectacular piece of Bison (mahogany) hide that I purchased from the buffalo leather store and it also has dark Bison and a rustic Bison, the piece on the front is elk antler. I sanded it flat and drilled all the holes for the threading to go through both the leather twice and the antler. The strap is a heavy nylon with the dark Bison where it will rest on the shoulder. It also has a nice size pocket on the back.
  20. I made this survival bag from buffalo and veg tan leather. All is hand sewn. It has a Leatherman Choice titanium, a Hudson Bay tabacco tin, a knife and sheath attached to the strap and a larger tin in the front.
  21. This is a small pouch for the hike in the woods. It's about 8"x8" x2" , good for carrying a few items for the trip.
  22. I designed this bag for a friend going through a hard time right now. I put her favorite scripture on the shoulder strap and a pen holder on the strap as well. This as well as all my work is hand sewn and the art work is burned and stained. Thank you for viewing. Comments are surely welcome.
  23. Nothing else to do with all this Bison hide I have so I just threw this together. No I'm not going to send you some of it, it's to much fun making things from this stuff. This thing is only 6" X 3 1/2" X 1 1/4" very small but nice. Hope you enjoy looking it over.
