I like the divider in the left side of the wallet, splitting the big pocket.

What is the leather weights used (if you have it on hand)?

Each piece looks perfectly balanced with style, leather and color selection, along with the hardware and execution.

It looks stylish with a dash of vintage. The fact that it is a matching set just adds more awesome.

I love seeing pieces balanced like that. I haven't really achieved that in my work yet.

Be very proud.

Heh. I saw your post on reddit! Still love this bag and after seeing it I made one in a similar shape. Mine didn't come out nearly as nice. I should have sewn the gusset the way you did, but I sewed it outside to inside instead of inside to inside... if that makes sense. I ended up with an ill defined bit of hangover leather past my stitch line and looks sloppy.

Ha ha, great! Glad you like it. I think I understand, but some pictures would help if you care to share

I see. I think doing it your way needs a bit more care and planning to end up nice

For sure. I didn't take enough time planning it out. Just kind of threw it together. I'm very new at leathercraft and that is one thing I am learning - that I have to think ahead or my end product reflects my lack of planning.

True! Also patterns on card stock really help. If you have Inkskape or some free CAD program, it helps alot

Nice work...I especially like the double gussets (done very well), and the wallet interior.
Excellent!

That's a good idea. Actually, my wife has one of those cricut machines. I bet I could design some stuff on there and have the cricut cut out some templates for me perfectly.

Thank you! I should use thinner leather for the gusset in the future, so it doesn't pull the main panels.

Wow. beautiful! Love the dandelion seeds too. Are those punches or individually done?

edit - realizing they are very detailed and different and individual. NICE work.

Can I ask; what software do you use to design on the Cricut ?

It has its own proprietary software, unfortunately. She used it to create a lot of the stuff for our wedding, but I haven't really messed with it much. The software is a web-based type app, but from what i've seen it's kind of like a lighter weight adobe illustrator.
