Oh Snap

I’m probably going to go back, hack and make at least 10, 000 words worth of edits, but that is not the point.

Here’s a Headline – More Leather Below

Sorry for the lame-o headline. I’m tired of writing headlines. I write them every day for work and I’ve already written three today, so I’m spent.

But there is more leather below.

First up a custom order for a guitar strap I’m working on. It’s not completely finished yet, but I was psyched about the design, which turned out the way I wanted it to and (I hope) the way its new owner had in mind.

Below that is a leather seatbag for road racing, or whatever form of cycling you fancy. These will be available at Downtown Bike Hounds in Hamilton starting Tuesday December 8th.

A little farther down the page is a Christmas ornament of the dude from Log Driver’s Waltz. Canada Vignettes anyone? No? Maybe this link will jog your memory.

Happy holidays hosers!

She Cried “More More More”

Upates, updates!

First up is a Christmas ornament – this little guy works as well hanging from a bough as he does diving from a present. Makes a flashy tag that you can keep. Moms love that stuff. I know mine does

On deck – a trio of simple change purses. Sweet design on the back, brass snap up front.

Third on the list is a guitar strap covered in Ontario Parks icons. I do these custom-styles too, if you’re not as Canadian camp nerd as I am.

Feathers Everywhere

All right – here they are.

First up – I’m on a bit of a Christmas ornament kick in preparation for the Makers Market next weekend. Here’s a hand-tooled leather feather to hang on the tree. I think I’m going to have to make these a little smaller. As is, this one is the same size as the cuff below, which is very nice, but its price will have to reflect the size.

I don’t know if I would pay the same for a Christmas ornament as I would for a bracelet, but maybe I’m cheap? Or a Scrooge?

Next up is a design I’ve been thinking about for almost two months, but didn’t get around to making until yesterday. A massive leather feather to wrap around your wrist.

More to come tomorrow. I’m just waiting for a few things to dry.

I’m All Talk

I do have a finished product to show, but it’s after five and (thanks to winter) dark out now so I don’t have a photo. I could just take one indoors, but I am done with godforesaken flashes starting now.

Check back tomorrow for a couple new things in the way of leather goods!
