    I thought I commented somewhere, hollows, but that watch band looks fantastic. Your stitching is perfection. Nice iphone cases, tagsmith! I recently made up one of my card cases with a vintage USN button in black. Watching natural leather evolve is fun, but I am thinking I need some black goods soon. [​IMG]

    Nice case zissou. Clever use of the Naval button. I started off saddle stitching everything, but I do it a lot less now that I have this Luberto. It is one sweet machine.

    Thanks Zissou. Digging the USN button.

    Good god, that machine is almost obscene. Incredible...what do they cost? I'm really happy with my handstitching so I'm pretty iffy about machines, but I'm still curious. Their website leaves something to be desired.

    Is the belt for that nicolnicolnicol dude? [​IMG]

    yes, Mike!


    Another one from the good people of OGL ... I love it but its hard getting used to since im going from a thin little wallet to this

    [​IMG]


    the wallet will sort of compress thinner after long usage.
    Looking at the texture, it is one of those parts of the animal that has got prominent growth grains.
    Keep using and it will surely evolve into a character piece [​IMG]

    I got mine from an old saddle maker, so I don't know how much they cost now.

    iPad sleeves! These are fun to make. I get to just geek out over stitching and edging. [​IMG]

    Very nice biker's wallet. I carried a biker's wallet for 20 something years, then I couldn't anymore because of back pain. I try to make all my wallets on the thinner side so they're not so bulky. Here's one I make out of 3-4 oz, that just has two spaces on the inside, one for cash and one for cards.
