    I have always wanted to get into leather working and have a slight obsession with hides. So far I have mainly just been a collector on hides. Anyways I decided to just go for it. My daughter was my guinea pig and made her a purse. It was a lot harder then I thought it would be m IMG_1811.jpg

    Don’t mind the W that’s what I goofed on :/
    And finished my tote bag today IMG_1808.jpg
    Next I think I’m going to Tackle a leather binder for my husband. Use him as my New Guinea pig and then make one for me lol

    Thank you! I just got my leather sewing machine so I won’t have to use so much lacing. That is really expensive! I like fringe though lol I’m a child at heart :p so also ordered a fringe cutter. But that’s what took me so long to get going on it. When you goof it’s usually a expensive goof

    Thank you guys! There’s still a few nit picky things that I need to figure out but I think I got most of it figured out. In my mine it seemed so easy, then I realized it was not as easy as I thought. But I also am OCD about little things

    Those look so cool! I love the way the bright colors go with the natural hides!

    Thank you! Both colors ended up being much brighter then they looked when I ordered them. Maybe because of the more neutral colors bring it out more. I’m usually chicken when it comes to bright colors :p
