Today's post is the second installment of 2014 Christmas gift sewing. A Christmas idea came my way for a handmade tool holder/bag. Girls are easy to sew for, but for guys it gets a bit tricky. When this idea came, I jumped on it right away. My local fabric store has a great selection of leather remnants. The piece I wanted was huge (uh... yes, cows are big!) and they kindly cut it down to the size I needed. Here is the finished project...
|My first all-leather project was a tool holder. Leather takes a bit of practice to work with. I used my regular sewing machine and a needle designed for sewing with leather, but it can be tough going!|
|There is something great about leather, though! The smell, the feel -- I just love it.|
|The pattern for this is a "one of a kind." I had some outer dimensions to work with and just went from there.|
