  3. Hi Everyone, I am pretty new to this and still learning tricks of the trade, honestly the reason I got into it was all because I was searching for a pair of nice pair of soft sole moccasins and couldn’t find ones I like so, I decided I would make my own. My first attempt honestly did not go well I learned a lot about what not to do and things I can do differently second pair was made from pieces of suede I found at hobby lobby, I can’t count how many times I stitched ,unstitched ,modified my pattern and did it again, after about 2 weeks of working on them on and off I was finally done, and I’m pretty sure I work them consistently the entirety of the whole COVID lockdown, my next few pairs were for my girlfriend and at the time 2 children. After wearing them around for sometime people started to show some interest in them and I had a few requests for some custom designs ( side note, I don’t know about you guys but the moment you hand the finished product to the customer is absolutely terrifying, but seeing the reactions when they saw them and put them on was one of the coolest feelings I have ever felt, since then I haven’t had a lot of time but I managed to make a few other pairs I still need to post on to my Reddit which I will link my forum because I have no idea how to get pictures on here haha but any input or advice would be gratefully appreciated, thanks for reading! https://www.reddit.com/r/BessMoccasins/
  4. Just wanted to let you guys know we're running a sale in our shop. Some of you are already our clients but we wanted to make sure you all get a chance to grab something you wanted at a cheaper price.
  5. My grandfather worked for Tandy all throughout the 50’s and 60’s, and then went on to teach leather skills at Texas A&M university Kingsville. I have a few thousand patterns and craftaids from his years in the industry. That’s all.

  7. Tandy's Leathercraftlibrary page has a lot of mixed-up links for the various free doodle pages, pattern packs, ebooks, etc., that they offer. (When you click on the item you want to read, it gives the right description but when you click on the Read Now link, other patterns appear.) For those who can't go through each page to find the pattern they wanted, attached are two versions of the same file. Each file contains clickable links for all 999 of them. The one ending in .docx should work in Microsoft Word. The one ending in .rtf should open in Wordpad. In either file, click Ctrl-F to search for the name of the one you want, or go one by one and download. You should be able to just click on any of the items and have it open the webpage. Don't forget to save each one you want. This should not violate any rules or laws, as it's just a list of their own links. Enjoy! -JL leathercraftlibrary_links-210803.docx leathercraftlibrary_links-210803.rtf
  8. Hi guys, ive been doing leather work for a number of years now and am wanting to take on my first saddle. I live in a country where there aren’t many teachers - or resources. So I was wondering if anyone could recommend where I could buy some patterns/templates? also any recommendations on tutorials etc would be greatly appreciated. I have been binge watching whatever I can find on YouTube for the last few months. again, any tips and advice appreciate!! thanks in advance.
  9. I need help. I have a full side of pull up leather that I purchased over a year ago with the intention of making myself a weekend bag and matching dopp bag, and I can't get myself to cut into it. I have yet to find a pattern that I like, and I'd hate to start only to be disappointed. I've searched this website for ideas and the web for patterns but nothing. Has this ever happened to anyone? What did you do to overcome this fear? I really want to make one, but I don't want to have a butchered hide if I mess up. PS I also promised to make my wife a leather bag as a 3rd anniversary gift... a year ago as well. I have a pattern for that, just scared to start. <face smack>
  10. Good day! I just wish to inform everyone interested in our work that our prices will be trimmed during the pandemic as a way to fraternize with everyone who can't leave home and would like to exercise their leather craft. Interest in patterns has increased during this period but I know everyone's economies are bleeding so we'd rather take this hit as one. Link to the store

  16. I know this gets asked periodically, but I can't find anything here on old posts, so here goes: Does anyone know of an off-the-beaten-path mold gun supplier? I'm specifically looking for a S/W 60LS - it's the Lady Smith in .357 J-frame (2.125" barrel). If not, have you ever successfully cut down or left the holster short using a longer gun mold? I can't find her on : Duncans Knifekits (Blue Guns,Cook's, HolsterMolds, MultiMolds or QLH) Bunkhouse Tools Boise Foundry or Rings. Let me know if you can help! With any luck, someone else will find a new supplier of their own on the thread!

Now, because of its age; it was added to Public Domain in 2016. *This book is very rare, some copies are preserved and archived in some museums - MET. I hope you find these awesome patterns and illustrations useful. Big thanks to Letter T for condensing the PDF, Nuttish, Chirsash, and Buttermutt07 for testing the link on multiple platforms. P.S. Source files are in the Library of Congress - National Archives site. Enjoy, Deb
  18. I was going through some very olf bookmarks on my pc from about 2001, and visited bighousedaddy site, for the first time in a gazillion years. The heading is the tag that "Bighousedaddy hasd went to be with THE MASTER craftsman" http://www.bighousedaddy.com/ Does anyone have any information on this stalwart of the business, I always liked his patterns and wondered if they were still available, and if so, where from and if they'd work on win10. Thanks Harry

  20. I have purchased several PDF pattern just to see what happens. I find that many of them come in multiple parts that you are supposed to cut out, line up and glue onto a piece of cardboard. Most come without dimensions. Anyone have any suggestions for how to line up the patterns? Short of not purchasing these I was just wondering how folks make them work... There is always extra paper at the edge of the patterns or hash marks that just don't line up. Thoughts? Suggestions (besides just not buying them ever agin which I have thought of!! )? Thanks in advance
  21. The Power Of Creative Therapy! I've always had a lot of hobbies but discovered leathercraft during a difficult time in my life. It was extremely therapeutic as well as rewarding and helped me focus on what I was doing creatively rather than on the problems around me. Over the years I've discovered a lot of people with a similar experience as mine. We all need a healthy outlet that does not involve looking at a screen or being preoccupied with likes on social media. One good friend and successful leather artisan once shared with me that prior to getting involved with leathercraft she was losing an ongoing battle with depression. She had been on medication and therapy for a while, but in spite was getting worse. Then one day someone introduced her to leathercrafting and suggested she give it a try. She immediately took to it and her condition began to rapidly improve. Within a short amount of time, she was off her meds and living a healthy and productive lifestyle. Since then she's made a career out of her craft and has received multiple awards and honors for her work and contributions. Healthy creative expression is not only a very important part of who we are, I believe it's also food for our souls. Its a beautiful way to share with others some of our finer qualities rather than some of the chaos we're fed through the media everyday. You can't always take a vacation from stress in your life, but you can find opportunities to rest and recharge through creativity. There are also many reasons why I love to work with leather besides the fact that I find it relaxing and therapeutic. So, I don't want you to think that it's just something I do to chill out, it's also extremely rewarding... It's provided me with incredible opportunities to develop my talents into a profession and work with some of the most talented craftsmen in the world. I love the strong sense of community that exists within the trade and the support that the community shares with one another. Leather is also perhaps one of the most versatile materials in the world and its craft is as ancient as civilization itself. Leathercraft is a skill that just about anyone can learn and put to use in their lives, given the opportunity.

  22. ,Just found this site on Etsy that has a large number of downloadable templates for bags and other items at in most cases about £5 or under. Downloaded template comes in both AO size and A4, and the one i have just downloaded, looks well thought out; and whilst it does not have instructions as such, the wording on each template is enough to show where it should go etc As most patterns will probably only be used once or twice, I don't think it matters much if pattern is printed on Paper/Card rather than the more expensive acrylic ones Link here https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LeatherPatternCraft?ref=l2-shop-info-name

  24. Hi , all! Part of my plan for 2018 is to spend more time here (and less on Facebook!) sharing our passion for all things leather. So here is my first "share": Check out Chriswdesigns.com. She designs handbags/purses for fabric but uses a lot of vinyl trim and I have made a lot of her patterns using thinner leathers that have been real stunners. I am finishing one this weekend that I will post pics of.
  25. So, I have done a few projects such as belts, wallets, dopp kits, and a duffle bag. I have settled on mine next major project and could use some guidance moving on to a more complex project (as I see it). I want to build a pilot bag like the one seen on Buffalo Jackson. https://buffalojackson.com/large-leather-briefcase-everett-pilot-bag-camel.html I believe that I can get the basic shape, the pockets, the handles, and the strap right. What I am not sure about how to complete is the inner pockets for the laptop and tablet, the pocket that is accessible from the outside (making a hidden pocket), adding loops for pens, and the lining without showing all of the edging. I also still debating the welting. I made a dopp kit that the interior looks terrible because I didn't do a very good job on the inner seams and I don't want to repeat this mistake. Any advice is appreciated as I would like to work out a solid plan before I start building this bag. It must be able to fit in the overhead of an airplane as I will be flying frequently. I am also uncertain as to what thickness of leather would be best...2/3, 4/5? I am still debating hand sewing this or using that most aggravating sewing machine I got from Tippman....leaning more towards hand sewing to reduce blood pressure and cussing. I am not so good at pattern making but will try to put together something decent to post to the group as I work through this project. Looking for a little group think on this project to make it as good as I can and any help is greatly appreciated.
