Oh ok cool. phewww I was getting worried there. Although the distraction still happens. Still love the bag though. The negative for me is that I don't know if I can stitch leather and have it reverse out like fabric. I'll have to see what I can do.
The sword would be awesome. A broom stick with a wrapped handle and a big ol folded piece of corrugated painted with blood and pieces of flesh would be nice. It can even be a bit smaller. I'm just saying.
Love the Tarot reference. Thank you so much for the comments to everyone. FYI the Avetar is of a wallet I made. A skeleton bird from a series including this Bird, a skeleton butterfly and a skeleton bee.
I'll keep you posted and thank you again for the kind words.
Thank you Birdlittle. Yes I do have to pre-punch all my holes and sometimes one at a time and then I do hand stitch using a waxed thread which is thicker. The art is all my drawings and then traced with a knife used for leatherwork and then traced with beverlers to add depth and definition. the background is then added and any other textures I want. Color is paint brushed on and then finally a coat of conditioner or sealer is applied.
Ok I've been a bit busy but this is one that applies to this section. Like alot of us here this is all stitched by hand. No machine yet but I like the hand stitch better for securing the leather together.
