    I make leather journals, pen holders, small flashlight sheaths. I’ve done a few knife sheaths...I love sewing by hand!

    I’ve never really made anything with leather before. A friend of mine is a leather worker and she let me use some scraps to put together this sheath. I ended up cutting it a little shallow so retention wasn’t the best, but wet forming it really helped and now it clicks in and out like kydex.

    Bic lighter holders. V1(right) and v2(left) bother after good use.
