Making: Leather tooled wallet

2012-60-miriamdema

I finally finished this wallet up last week and took some pics yesterday. Somehow it took me forever to do the stitching along the edge, between a bunch of other things happening and how much pulling and tugging it takes to get the waxed thread tight it took me a bit.

I designed the pattern of geometric shapes and thunderbird from a combination of found images and hand tooled all of the designs before I colored it all in with leather dye. It holds all my cards, money and even my phone in a pinch. Next up, a leather envelope bag I designed a pattern for yesterday! Woo, new trip to the leather store, fun stuff!
