    My first attempt at a mag pouch

    To stave off boredom on my day off, I decided to break out the leatherworking supplies from my time in 4-H and make a magazine pouch.

    Here I'm working on imprinting an image into the leather.

    this is a close-up of the dragon I embossed into the leather. when it's wet, leather is pliable like clay, so you can get raised edges and such.

    Holes punched for stitching (not all of them, I added more just before stitching it because I decided to change the stitch pattern slightly)

    here I've treated it with a compound called Neatsfoot oil, which protects it from moisture, and gives it a darker color.

    and the finished pouch after stitching.

    I feel like I've accomplished something today

    Pain is the best teacher,but nobody wants to go to his class.


    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    you'd be surprised how easy it was....

    I learned how to do this as a 13-year-old in 4-H, and I haven't really advanced my skills that much since.

    Looks pretty good to me. The important this is, did you have fun doing it? If so, then mission accomplished.
