Very clean.  With outcomes like that, i would order a larger piece and go into production.  Well done.

Oofah!  That's sharp!  Did you use anything on the back of the alligator, or just use it unlined?  What weight was it?

Excellent and so nice to see matching thread rather than contrast colour thread fighting for the attention of the leather

Hey thanks, the extra small works well for this type of card wallets, and I actually made an offer to buy 50 skins but they won't give me a discount unless it's 75 skins.

WELL, I don't know about the buyer, but if it were me, I might intentionally whip it out whenever I go to Burger King's drive throughs. Plan on making a burgundy for myself and maybe I'll do just that when... I pump gas.

That's really sharp looking. I plan to do a wallet as my next project and now I'm tempted to do it in alligator lol.

If you don't mind a few minor blemishes, I think grade 2/3 are perfect for the job.

Unfortunately, no, but don't tell the ID thieves.

The gator is 2 oz or so, the inside is Alran Sully at 2 oz as well. Instead of gluing the gator and the goat lining completely, I only glued the edges about 3 mm in. Gator isn't flat so if you glue them completely, you'll see the pattern of the scales from the inside. I personally don't like that. Also, when you only glue the edges, the whole piece is a lot softer and you'll have less resistance or stress opening or closing the wallet.

Classic luxury is low key. And I'm a tad colorblind so destined to fail with daring color matches.

Thanks for that detail.  I'll give it a try next time, and see if I like the results.  Like you I haven't liked the look of seeing the pattern on the inside.

Super job in every aspect.  Burnishing is one of the best I've seen.  Love Alligator.  You nailed it.

Stunning! The attention to detail was well worth it. Well done. I really have to try making a wallet one day.
