Here’s a last minute Christmas gift that was sent out.

Wallet is constructed of 3oz black buttero with black 0.45mm waxed linen thread spaced at 3.38mm and black Uniters edge paint...

 I got this side of leather on sale from Rocky Mountain so I wasn’t able to have it split.. I usually prefer 1.0/1.5oz leather to keep the bulk down but I did a lot of skiving where I could to keep this project as thin as possible. Questions comment and critiques always welcome. Happy holidays !!
Thanks for looking

Nice work as usual! The placement of the stitch line next to the crease line looks a little odd to me but I think it’s just personal preference. The leather is beautiful and that’s a sharp looking wallet.

Hey thanks @Retswerb

I just recently started doing the stitch next to the edge crease. It’s really just so I can keep the stitches as close to the edge as possible and use it as a guide for my pricking irons.

Also since the edge crease is uniform on the all pieces the stitch holes will line up better in my case because I found I can achieve nicer stitching when I punch the wallet interior and outside separately then glue and stitch. Instead of gluing everything up and punching thru all the layers stacked like I used to.
