    I have shell key fobs like this:

    Otherwise I know @WHEarl has some similar key fobs too.

    Hollows Leather sells some on his website for $13 - $25 in standard or shell as well.

    Is this what you were thinking?

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a supplier of metal findings and the like? I'm trying to find a bag strap slider (or triglide, or whatever you want to call them) with a circular or ovoid shape and a center bar measuring a little over 1" in length (1.25" might be ideal). Basically this:

    But in a silver / nickel / pewter / whatever you want to call not-brass color with more of an antiqued / weathered / matte finish, so it would go along with the hardware on this:

    FWIW, I don't particularly care about wire vs. cast, although I might prefer closed to open if wire.

    Had a request for a bandana woggle so I knocked these out. The one here is russet, but I did versions in blue, black, red and natural. It's definitely a particular look, but they were fun to make since I used to make these out of different materials as a scout many years ago.

    Hey guys, I and my team made this. We're very proud of the result but realize we also need improvement, I have a few questions and would love some advices, any would do really.

    How can we effectively bond 2 skins together? I knew Prada and Belstaff, Burberry did some with their unlined/bonded leather jackets very well. We mainly use glue, bread roller for this attempt.

    And have anyone lined tge interior with linen? I have not seen and thinking about experimenting on linen fabric as lining for jacket.
