Yay!! My first post on Craftster!! It took me forever to figure out how to post on here!! But i did it. Here is a leather arm band i made with some things i bought from Micheals.

[[okay, I'm not allowed to post pictures yet because i haven't posted enough yet so all i can do is give the links to me pictures, sorry!!]]

Here it is!! There are 12 studs, it took me forever!! I kept hammering in the studs crooked and having to take them out. I got the hang of it, eventually.

You can't tell, but each stud has a little star on it - it makes it a little more girly. I thought about adding lace to get a sort of masculine/feminine combo, but decided that would look ugly.

I still have another piece of leather. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. This will probably be my last leather project though...leather is hard to work with in my opinion.

Tell me what you think!! I'd love to here anything anybody has to say!!

i like it. it's hard to tell what colour the leather is, did you stain or dye it?
