Wow .... this was really interesting.

This brought back memories (ummmm about 40 yrs. ago), I paid someone to make me a purse (hand tooled and painted). It was beautiful!!! Then, my Mom made me a wallet and coin purse to go with it. That purse was well and truly used, so much so, that it was absolutely filty and I just couldn't clean it and had to finally trash it. Oh, how I bemoan doing that.

I've never tried this medium ... you sure made it look easy.

I'm surprised that your kitty didn't try to help you again.

Believe me, she was trying to hop up and investigate between takes. Huzzah for video editing programs.

Quite a few people take a look at hand carved leather items that tend to be a bit on the expensive side....but the difference between getting a hand carved belt for 60-80$ depending on the design, versus a 10$ walmart special, the difference is in the test of time. I made Doug a belt several years ago (while I was still working for Tandy), and other than looking a bit color faded, its holding up..Whereas a 10$ belt would have fallen apart in months because they use cheap glue and even cheaper stitching.
