Here is an iPad sleeve I made for myself. It’s made from the same leather that baseball gloves are made from. It was a good project for me to show how far along my stitching has come along thanks to Phil and practice. Also the techniques I learned about skiving and sharpening are in play here. Skiving the edges really helped make this go from something akin to a saddlebag to something more refined. Learning to sharpen my French skiver and using it to thin the leather so the flap folds over easier was used as well. I am also including a picture of a wallet I did several years ago to show my progress. I gave it a coat of carnauba cream to give it some protection but not darken the leather too much. Feel free to give any critiques or suggestions. Thank you, Troy
