Been a while for me since I've posted anything.

Here's a sling I did for an uncle. I drew the pattern up myself too. That was a chore. Lots of room for improvement but I'm still mostly happy with how it came out. My bench seating arrangement isn't comfortable and I think I rushed it because of that. Anywho, thanks for looking.

Stats: leather was 8/10 oz veg tan that was sent to me as part of a tandy kit. 

I used indelible resist and indelible dark brown wax antique to antique the piece.

Thanks! I spent longer drawing the pattern than tooling it but it was a fun project

The intertwining with the "floral" on the letters is nicely thought out. :)

Thanks. Initially he wanted the letters to stand out a lot. So I didn't have the scrollwork about the letters. Then he saw one I did with it this way and liked it better so that's what I did haha. I think it looks better this way myself
