I decided it was time for me to finally post something I made, so decided to show off my frog.  He is made of heavy leather and was stitched with a leather stitching awl.  This is my first attempt with a stitching awl.  A little difficult to match thread (it uses a waxed linen not available in many colors) and to get into tight corners.

It'd probably been better to choose a straight line object for my first attempt, but where's the fun in that? 

Hope you like him!

Very cute.  It must have been tough working through the leather.
