I decided I needed a new hobby. Thought about a few but kept going back to the idea of doing leatherwork as it’s relatively quick and I like that you can do so many different things with it. Plus, if I get good, I can make handbags :blow kiss: I mean what more could a woman want? :D

So being the person I am I decided the beginners stuff was for babies and jumped straight into my first project at a slightly more advanced level. Well I’d watched YouTube videos so what could possibly go wrong?

Well I learnt one thing very quickly, like metal detectors don’t go and buy a starter kit from the rainforest site. It’s all rubbish! So after forking out a fortune for decent kit I ignored the cheap leather I already had and went straight in with the veg tanned quality stuff. Heck why not? I decided to create a holder for my Evolution digging blade :geek:

It took 3 days on and off, and isn’t perfect, but I’m chuffed with my first attempt. What do you think?

I know someone who needs a finds pouch so that’s next. I found a whole hide for car seats in the garage and neither my husband or I know how it got there. Honestly we really don’t :shock: Anyway it’s a lovely quality black leather one so I can get quite a few things out of it. Be a lot easier to stitch than the thick leather so I’m really looking forward to doing that next :D

Cath, that is a cracking piece of kit you made there. without sounding like I am picking fault, may I suggest a small strap with that push button thingy around the handle just to save it from falling out and getting lost? :thumbsup:

Good suggestion :D :thumbsup:

Whilst it’s as snug as a bug in a rug in there there’s always the risk it could fall out :D

What a great start. :thumbsup:
It could accumulate mud and moisture so perhaps if the bottom end was left open? :Thinking:

You need to make a car key pouch next, so you don't have to leave them in the hedge😆😁😂

Nice work :thumbsup:

Perhaps the Mk II could have a metal eyelet at the bottom to let moisture and dirt out, also to thread a string to secure and stop it flapping about?

Do you know what Cath, that is something that I've fancied trying too. You've done a great job with the pouch. :thumbsup:
