The card wallet was made in a few months ago and the watch strap was finished yesterday. It was easy at first, measuring, drawing pattern, cutting leather, but at the end of it, it was challenging for me. Perhaps, the strap width was too narrow and material wasn't the right choice.... At some point, I didn't want to finish it.... but I did.... The top stitch looks fine, but rear side of stitch isn't as neat :( I used a pig skin liner which worked out ok, but it wasn't satisfactory to me... In all, it was a good experience! I would love to use real alligator skin on projects upcoming! Thanks, Young IG: designs_by_yom

Hello everyone, I thought I'd share my project that I recently finished. This was made for my husband's birthday and it was very intense making it. It took nearly 2 weeks and half, plus another half of week to just checking everything... and found the strap was too long so I had to fix it... ;) As this was for a men and wanted rustic style of a bag, I chose Badalassi Carlo: Nemesis, vege-tanned and aniline finished hide. This was my first time using aniline finished leather and I enjoyed working with it. All the hardwares are antique finished solid brass, a micro suede for lining, and pig suede for inner pocket lining;I would really love to use velour when I can get to it but since I already had a pig skin on hand, I used this one on this project. I would really love to add more slots inside of the bag and install tuck lock with buckle as I originally planed. I had to modify my design plans due to material shortages and technical challenges 😂... but I hope to do better next time, if I make a messenger bag again. 😉 Thanks! Cheers, Young IG: designs_by_yom

Greetings to you all. My name is Youngoak. Born and rasied in S.Korea, immigrant to U.S. about 10 years ago. I am a mother of two kids, a cat, and two dogs, well, my Lily dog has passed last Friday, Dec 18, 2020 so now I have one dog... RIP Lily. How did I get started leatherwork? Well, initially I wanted to do interiors for my husbands car, 56' Dodge pickup truck and while I was waiting for the car to be restored, cough cough still waiting... ;) I couldn't help myself to test out my new sewing machine, so just one day, I went to Tandy Leather, got two different leather and made a tote bag which was half sewn by machine and half hand-stitched where I couldn't reach by the machine... after that, I couldn't stop playing with leather, hand stitching leather, made many more of little items and felt in love of doing it. I love leather! I think from my young age, I always loved them, envy of good leather item, but what I am most impressed about or love about is how some of stitches are so beautifully organized and sewn to a perfection. So since Sep of 2019, I am crazy about leatherwork, the whole process, and will be maintaining my love for leatherwork. At this point, I have a one goal, get my skill sharpen/improved by watching Philip's video course! ;) And then I will fully decided what to do next. See you around people! Thanks, Young
