So I made a wallet. It's nothing fancy. Second attempt at one. The last one I made was sloppier but super sturdy and aged well. This one is a bit cleaner. And yes, I accidentally punched through the back so I had to put stitches there.

Alternatively, here's the latest mix of a song I've posted about 3 times now. It's been very educational to make it and get feedback from people here.

I love the wallet, even with the accidental punches. Outside of craft shows, you don't usually run across a lot of people who work with leather for fun.

Thanks. I'll have to get a picture of the old one when I'm home. The patina is just full of charisma. It's actually not all that hard to do basic leatherworking stuff like this. Doing it well is another thing. There's a chain of stores that is equipped with all the leatherworking stuff you could want too.

Old leather is some of the best there is for patina. I'd love to see it.

Not op, or necessarily on track, but this is my wallet I inherited from my great grandfather. It has seen at least 20 years of daily use and is in pretty good condition. Leather is cool, I'd like to learn some leather craft for custom belts and bags.

That's in pretty good shape. If it's not too expensive, you should give leather a shot. It looks like a lot of fun.
