FS: Handmade leather card cases and keyhooks - NEW COLORS! - Page 4

post #46 of 148

I'm still waiting on the new dyes, which should be here tomorrow. I'll post samples when they get here. I have a black shortie that has been sitting around for a little while. SOLD (in 15 minutes lol)

The new dyes finally arrived, and I did some test strips. I'm really liking the British Tan and the Cordovan. British tan is a honey-colored mid-brown, very similar to the color of my year-old card case that started as natural. The Cordovan is a very rich dark brown, with some red undertones. I need to make myself something out of these colors! There's Black along the bottom, natural in the middle, British Tan on the left, and Cordovan on the right.

You mean like the one I made, but out of leather?

Hey Mark,

here's a couple pics of my keys. should i (you) just use a d-ring to connect the main VW key, or is there another small part that would work better to take advantage of the leather separation?




I'll send you a quick PM with my details.

thanks!

Hey Otis- You will need keyhook 01 with the two D-rings. I use keyhook 02 with my later model VW remote/key, because it has a wide slot at the top of the remote. See below for mine...

I have a sample of the Keyhook 01 in British Tan, SOLD I can also swap out the hardware for brass if you prefer. Also, I bought myself half a cow today (9-10 oz, so real thick), so I'm going to start making belts soon. Custom width, length, and color (from what I have but can get others), and everything will be hand cut, finished, and stitched. No rivets. I just need to pick up some buckles...

Got my hook yesterday (shipped on Sat from UT to Portland?! Fast!). Looks awesome! I just need to figure out how to streamline the car key part. I don't like how low it hangs now--think it's as simple as getting a smaller ring to bring the key itself as close to the D ring as possible.

That sounds great. A belt that is close in colour to RM Williams' "Claret" would be fantastic (maybe with some nice quick-release buckle).

^I don't have any dye in a burgundy/wine color, but I will look for some the next time I am at the leather shop. I might be able to get some of the 'lesser grade' silver QR buckles (by no means poor quality, just not as nice as the EG ones. I have used one for a year or more and it's been great), but I will keep looking for others. Otis- try using as small of a split ring as you can. That will keep it from hanging so low. I have to say, I've been very impressed by how quick the First Class shipping has been.

I don't look at the qr buckle as a prerequisite but it would be nice. Maybe even having the option of a snap instead of stitching the buckle down.
