Hmmmm...looks good, Times. Just wondering, did you think of a simple cut-edge for this one. I think the leather type's edge would stand out if a simple cut edge...IMHO.

Have you tried a pvd pig buckle on that?

This batch I like a lot, Times. drool.gif I notice the stitches are a little farther away from the edge. Is that on purpose? Any special reason for that? thumbsup.gif

That looks really good, Timesdrool.gif. I like the way you cut the edge and stitched the tailthumbsup.gif making it unsymmetrical.

Thank you! "Roycrofters" came to mind as I was finishing it up....maybe I should call it the Pasadena in honor of Bungalow Heaven which is just down the road from me!
