Are you an obsessive compulsive beginner leatherworker
The other day, I outed myself as an obsessive compulsive beginner leatherworker. Nevermind the education stuff. I just want to make things out of leather.
Anyway, this affliction has spread to members of my family as well. And if there’s a lesson here, it’s that hands on learning is the way to go.
Here’s the oldest one burnishing a wallet that we made.
Here’s the middle one having a go at stitching up a coaster that she’s making.
And here’s the youngest one doing some late night finishing work on another wallet.
