Really nice work Tim!  How did you tool the dark border around the outside of the design?

Thanks Gary, If your talking about the beveling around the tooling I use Barry King Bevelers then a spoon modeling tool one pass to smooth it up and then a ball point modeling tool to bevel the edge of the tooling so it doesn't look so flat and that also widens the beveling and smoothes it up more.

Thanks Tim - I am going to play around with your beveling technique -  it really looks good!

Toolin' looks good, and I like the color choices.  Maybe git sumthin' under the presser foot to prevent them stitchy marks?  Pic too dark to tell, how'dya do the edges?

I was just looking at the presser foot and it was tilted to the back with just the back touching. Changed that presser foot right before sewing that guitar strap and this wallet. One of those ID10T errors.  Been using that machine for years and have never had that problem.  The edges are burnished using Glycerin soap, canvas and wax. I can't seem to get the Wyo Sheen to look good on the edges so I usually just put some Atom Wax on the edges when finished.

Oh yeah.. diggin yer heels in -- literally :o  But them edges look pretty good for what appears to be a softer leather.

Beautiful work. 

I sometimes have a problem with my presser foot leaving marks... What can a person do about that?
