Turquoise was a theme this week…
I love this. LOVE. It’s based on an old 60s leatherwork pattern, but made a bit bigger to accommodate credit cards and jazzed up with the kind of colours it was probably never meant to be. Two pockets so you can keep your monies and plastics separated.
Guys asking after wallets always want the same thing – something thin. No, thinner. No, thinnest. Like a wafer. But with six or eight card slots (which always leads me to suggest the problem might not be with the wallet so much as the amount of junk in the wallet), but thin.
In the past, that’s [...]
Need a new wallet? Guess what I’m giving away? HINT: The same thing you need.
I think I’m going to keep one of the below for myself, but the other one is up for grabs.
Do you love the Lister Block? Hate the Lister Block, but your old wallet is pooched? Have utter indifference toward [...]
Tate recently asked if I could make a wallet out of an old baseball glove and I wondered, “why the heck not?”
As luck would have it, I was going to Aberfoyle with Jane on Sunday anyway, so I kept my eyes open for vintage sporting goods.
SCORE. I started with the catcher’s mitt [...]
Short and sweet because it’s after hours here at the homestead and I’m breaking my no-netting post-dinner rule in order to set things right with the site (which I could not update for lack of camera cable today).
Just a few more card wallets in various shades, closures and styles.
In a move too long in the making, I did another thinner version of the mini wallet I made Sean last year.
I’m hoping to have the time to work on a few more of them this week or early next week so I can take a handful over to White Elelphant, if they’re into [...]
The Lister Block wallet I started the other day. Done and done. Ready to put in the shop tomorrow.
I spent yesterday working on a custom order. A National Parks wallet.
This shot was a little premature. By the end of the day, I had it stained and lined so all that’s left this afternoon is stitching.
I’ve also got a group of Christmas orders on the slab for next week – some belts [...]
Even though this has been a long time in the imagining, I hadn’t planned to make it last week when I did. However, once I started messing around, I couldn’t stop.
Behold! The Gunslinger Purse!
Carries keys, cash , id, chapstick…
Thick bridle leather in a beautiful caramel colour. Hand-stitched with heavy cord.
Slits on [...]
I made this ages ago, but don’t think I ever posted a good image of it – the Pigott Building Wallet.
Based on my Pigott Building painting.
I’m going to drop this guy into the online shop shortly and start work on a few more wallets featuring Hamilton landmarks. Soon to be available at [...]
