Tell us about yourself!
I've not seen your blog so thanks for that link! I'm about ready to tackle the straps after finishing the shoulder pad as a starter for the project yesterday. I noticed that you finished the back sides of the straps with dye and possibly Gum Tragacanth? Did you do any finish to the flesh side on the internal compartments?
I've got all of the leather dyed and cut and I was wondering what stitch spacing you used for the project? My Tandy pricking iron kit has three different spacings ranging from 2.3mm to 3.9mm. Also I notice that you have small scrap pieces of leather on the base of your stitching awl. Is that to restrict the size of holes punched by the awl?Happy New Year and thanks for what I think is the best and most complete instructable out there!
Thanks for the information and Merry Christmas!
I'm in the process of cutting out the pieces and the full sized plan for the shoulder pad says that the width is 7cm but the width of the drawing is much less than that. Which is correct?
