This little wallet project packs a lot of fun and new skills. This kit contains all you need to saddle stitch, burnish the edges with your own leather slicker & oil the wallet to give you an AWESOME finish and protective coat. The leather is Wicket & Craig Veggie Tanned Skirting in 6 OZ - it is beautiful to start with and looks incredible with the neatsfoot oil.
This has been my daily carry wallet for the past month or two and I love it! Simple small, clean. Holds 4-8 cards easily. The design on the front is a vintage chainsaw derived from a picture taken by Springfield, OR photographer Ron Dobrowski. It's awesome.
You know a project is a winner when all three of our kids (9,12,14) wanted to make one the minute they saw the first prototype.
