Those are some super slick notebook covers!  I especially like the one with the red stitching but I think all of them are really cool!  Nice tooling on the tooled one, too.  I see you got your initial worked in there. Nice work!

First off, Thank you all for your comments. They are much appreciated. Seems like the main questions were about the dye technique. As I said in my post I give much credit to Corter Leather for the dye technique idea. They are on YouTube if you want to see. Here is a copy to the video link if you would like to watch. 

The process does take a bit of trial & error to get right but once it has been figured out the sky's the limit. Fiebings Oil Dye and water are the ingredients. 

Again, Thanks to all who commented.

To Noobleather...........................

The concho is a Standard Tandy concho. I don't remember if it needed an adapter to use it as a snap (I probably did though). At any rate it is a Tandy Concho.

Thanks for the good words.

I get my threads from Makers Leather Supply. They are usually always timely and correct. I have yet had a problem with them so far.

I do all my stitching by hand so it takes a bit longer but it also looks better too. I have found that as long as I do the SAME THING over & OVER it stays consistent. Thanks again for the compliments.
