    Just posting some things I like to make. My main production consists of watch straps, but I love to dabble in more creative goods when I can afford the time and know how. Essentially, I start with a piece of leather. Most of the time, it is a piece of vanilla colored leather that is then dyed, oiled and conditioned before being crafted and hand-sewn into a leather accessory of some sort.

    Here are a few pieces of the hundreds I've created over the last year.

    These three straps were made with leather from WWII ammo pouches.

    Everything but the wallet is sewn by hand. My sewing machine is a cheap POS so it sews like crap. Until I get into a new place with more room, I'm holding off on picking up an industrial grade machine that will come close to matching my hand stitching.

    Thanks :bigthumb:

    Not making them for sale ATM. Just don't have the right machine to do them perfectly. If it's not perfect, I'm not selling.

    They start at $65 shipped and work their way up from there.

    Thanks broski. :bigthumb:

    This

    Thank you.
