    Got restless out in the garage last Saturday and started to tinker.

    I had no plan, no design idea, just started going.

    At first it was going to be a pen pouch (that's why the plastic tubing in the pic) and it sort of went a different direction a few minutes later.

    Ive made a cheap leather sheath before for my Leatherman Wave, but this time I wanted a quality leather one. Nice THICK leather that would age well.

    This is the first time using this leather and the first time using the hole punch pictured for getting the holes for threading.

    [​IMG]

    I intended it to be a belt sheath...but then realized that I should have done the belt loop first... oh well ha

    Here is what came out at the end

    [​IMG]


    Afterwards I got my leather burning tool out and started trying it out and writing with it.
    Thought about gifting this to my father, but dont, honestly, think he'd carry it and it wasnt good enough to gift, I felt.

    Pretty good for a first timer :)
    Here are a couple of tips. Just looking at second pic.

    1.The bottom part where it's bunched up. The front half should be wet formed to the piece. Wrap it in a bit of Saran wrap and wet form it, if done right it will take the shape of the item and hold the shape.
    2. The stitching looks pretty decent. For a more finished look try using a saddle stitch, it will look continuous without gaps in the stitching. Please keep posting pics as you progress in the craft.

    a) I dont know what you mean about the wet forming, explain more, please.
    b) I dont know what you mean about saddle stitching either ha

    Here is a fairly simple one I posted a while back for the Michael Morris knife.See how the bottom part was fitted to the knife with no bunching up? That is wet forming. Now look at the stitching, see how this one is continuous? That is a saddle stitch with no gaps between the stitches. Looks like a machine did it, but it wasn't.
    You have the talent, if you want some tips just ask :)
