As usual, your work is beautiful -- it ages to look even better, if that's possible!

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.

I recently started to use unwaxed kangaroo leather. It’s about 1mm thick and it’s got a great feel to it. This is a wallet project I recently finished using this leather.

Free downloadable pattern available, too!

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 enough for a front pocket…

Loved the movie "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" and thought I'd re-create the wallet that is part of the story. Without going all-out with the details, I made up my own version of it here.

Leatherwork – Handmade & Designed in Australia
Introduction
I love making cases for the gadgets that I have (I have a tech gear buying addiction) because most mass-produced cases and bags don't have the same quality feel as a handmade product. And it's a great excuse for me to take a break from designing things on the computer.

I'm also trying to document the way I make things so I can show the process on my website www.highonglue.com. Hopefully that will help you or inspire you to make something by hand, too. Something you can take pride in!

This profile will be updated with new work and work in progress whenever I make something new. Once I get to upgrading to a better camera, you'll also find videos on this page.

If you have any questions, let me know!
