An experiment in shapes: Angular cutout for the front part of the sleeve and minimum number of stitches. Finished in mahogany and from a single piece of saddle leather. Fits iPhone 6 without case.
The first version of the updated flip wallet for iPhone 6. I’m working on updating the tutorial as soon as I have a final version of this one ready. This version uses much thinner, lighter and stronger kangaroo leather. Thin … Continued
Colour variations of the same wallet pattern.
My first dog collar and leash set. The leash is vegetable tanned leather with a solid brass snap and copper rivets.
Made from the offcuts from the project I posted earlier, this SD card sleeve matches the style and fits into the main pocket of the wallet.
I made this wallet based on the one seen in the movie and matched up the number of stitching holes as well as the general design and style.
The entire process of designing and making of this leather lens case. I didn’t do any planning, so you can see how I changed my mind a couple of times about some parts of the design.
This is a first try in braiding kangaroo leather. A basic 4 strand braid with a small keyring on one end and a loop on the other end. I think this could be useful for small camera wrist straps or finger straps.
Every stitch is done by hand and the entire case is made from Australian vegetable tanned leather with suede lining.
I’m working on refining a design for a small case to hold the X100 and maybe a couple of batteries and I wanted to share the thought-process I go through.
This case fits an iPhone 5 5C or 5S. Made from 9oz (3.5mm) and 4-5oz (1.7mm) thick leather and no lining. I hand-stitched the parts using orange waxed linen thread and finished it with mahogany dye and black edges.

In my quest to make a leather case for every possible thing I can find, I made this sleeve that fits 2 Fujifilm X100 spare batteries.
This is one of those test-cases. It might be bulky but it also feels like you can throw it around without ever damaging the phone!
As an added design element, I chose to hand-carve a piece of 1984 Macintosh history into the front.
Part of a 2 case set – this is similar to my other iPad cases but has no carving on the front and is dyed in a dark “mahogany” tone.
The largest iPad case I’ve made so far. It fits a US legal pad, 2 pens an iPad and some loose papers. Made entirely of Australian vegetable tanned leather.
