Leather bag "Carmen"View Instructable »
Soooo agreed! How can I enter a 3D contest hoping to win a 3D printer if I don't actually have one to create the entry?? And that goes for everything. Sewing machines should be for prizes in NON-sewing contests, woodworking machinery prizes should be offered in NON-wooden related contests, etc. Give the fair chances to everyone.
They were selling this for $85 and when social media picked this up and started talking about it a lot it was all marked "sold out" for whatever reason LOL
I will be honored to see your creation based on my tutorial, thank you!And Merry Christmas!
Wow, that IS a beautiful color and a wonderful bag! Very well done, I am happy to see my tutorial was useful! Thank you for sharing the photos!!
Oh, yes, absolutely, you can cut the gusset in one piece! Material economy is always in my mind LOLPlus it is always useful to know how to connect and lace two pieces in case you don't have enough leather for one long gusset. Good luck with the project and if there are any more questions please do not hesitate to ask!

Thank you very much, it is very kind of you!
The leather is usually slippery while new and polished, but in this case it does not really make any discomfort because the patches (leather pieces) are small and the whole surface is covered with seams in all directions which prevents sliding. Also, very soon the leather will break in and the polished layer on the surface will wear out. Leather will be soft and good.
I don't think you need to vent it, the rug will be flat on the floor and there is no fur on leather so there is no places for moisture to stuck. You would only need to condition it maybe once a year and it will last for years. Apart of that no special care required. As to the slippery thing, if you feel you will be uncomfortable maybe make those patches smaller. It will cause more work for you (plenty of stitching) but will not let your feet to slide as the seams will prevent it.
This one would be great for a prize: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Synology-DS416-Bay-Desktop-Enclosure/dp/B016BTZGM0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1480158860&sr=8-2&keywords=DiskStation%2BDS416play&th=1
Thank you very much!! That makes me feel better :-)Thanks!
Thank you very much for clarifying this for me, I appreciate it!
Thank you Mehlani! I am glad you found my tutorial useful!
So cool!! Can't believe there is no comments here! I love doll houses and always wanted to be able to make my own lighting inside the house. Thank you!
"Make it antique" contest.There will be some awesome instructables I am sure. But the prizes must be very much worth it because not everyone is ready to share theiy antiquing processes LOL
The Network Attached Storage (NAS) at least 12TB would be an awesome Grand Prize. Smaller capacity would be great for first, second, etc prizes.Also, good photo lenses would be greatly appreciated I am sure about it. Good DSLR photo cameras will always be valued by almost anyone I think. Not just point-and-shoot cameras but professional ones or at least semi-pro. And not only for Photo Contests.Leather working tools and machines (splitters, clickers, embossers, leather sewing machines) would be absolutely awesome prizes, there are good companies who make these. There is a lot of woodworking tools and machines for prizes but there is hardly any equipment for leather workers except those rare leathercraft contests.All these would be so much appreciated and not just by me I am sure.Thank you!
I am so going to make them! Thank you very much!! Voted!

This is one awesome tree house! You have my vote!Do you have peacocks in your backyard??

Hi, I use sheep wool offcuts, I bought them on ebay some time ago. If you keep an eye for them you will catch them. Tandy sells them, too but much more expensive.
Oh and I forgot to say that yes it can be reused. I have one piece for each color I use the most. After the job is done I don't even wash it. It dries out and is stored in a dedicated tray (where all my coloring stuff it). When I need it again I just dip it into water and here you go, ready for coloring again! Hope this helps.

Sorry, I can't find the other part of the tutorial. What should I do after I decided if I want a zipper or buttons? How do I go about installing the zipper? And what do I do next? The jacket in the photo is half way finished so I guess I am missing the other part of the tutorial and I can not see any "next page" or something that would indicate there is "to be continued". Thank you!
