Lots of foot traffic, good feedback and possible leads – great experience – worked three months to get the projects done (not all are pictured) and most were new designs. Now time to decompress and enjoy retirement!
New envelope card holder/wallets; plain and stitched.
Minimalist style card holders.
Stainless steel wire earrings crafted with scrap leather and new and upcycled costume jewelry.
So after my dining room was repainted, I opted to put my bags in my hutch and left the “good dishes” in boxes.
And know how to use them.
This is a brochure for Ets Regad Electrical tools. For edge finishing, this little beauty is a must and worth the investment.
There are assorted right and left handed accessories – best of all is being able to purchase custom stamps!
I considered taking courses at a local college or tech school, but found a one-year program offered by an individual; I took the beginner course and successfully completed the first six projects.
Yes, there are seven items here…the first is a sample to learn basics like cutting, gluing, stitching (each piece is hand stitched) and edge finishing.
This is the back side of the first project, a slim card wallet (of buttery soft leather). Look closely and you can see the stitching lines around the outer edge are not quite straight. An even closer look and you may be able to see the creasing iron marking. My plan is to incorporate creasing and the edge finishing techniques I learned into wallets and leather handbags.
Where has the time gone – September is right around the corner!
After many renditions I am happy to present my LOGO!
I had an idea and worked with Juan, (a friend of a friend) and we came up with this little gem.
Soooo worth the wait!
