Yesterday, I tried to make leather straps.
At first, I polished the back and side of the strips with glue for leather.
Then, I tried to put cap rivets.
It was really difficult for me. One is because my hammer is of rubber and couldn't beat well. And also because I didn't get a setter for it.
So the rivets didn't go well. I made many failed pieces...
Then, I went out to get good hammer and setter for me and retry it.
It got much easier than before!!!! I could put the rivets well and I finished making straps.
The top one is what I got and the other four are what I made by myself. (At first, I cut six strips... He he...)
Now I can make my new pouches with my handmade straps (* v *)!!!!
At last, I made a little leather charm for my practice of stitching.
It was difficult to cut a circle with cutter knife, and to make good stitching holes. But I'm just getting started it! It's only the beginning!
Today when I went out with my boyfriend, I got this book as a text.
I couldn't find it in Amazon.com.
This is written by a woman who is from Yoshida & Co.ltd.(of PORTER).
She wrote detailed instruction and basic information using lots of pictures.
I try to make this passport case at first.
I hope it appears well and I can post here about it...
Thank you very much for reading!
Have a good weekend to you all!
