Picture of Leather Patch

This is NOT a beautiful piece of leatherwork by any stretch of the imagination, I know that! It was a test to see if I could use my vinyl cutter to cut some 1.2mm thick veg tan leather. I used my Silhouette Cameo with a deep cut blade and cut out my maker's mark and then saddle stitched it onto this black cap. I also cut out a thin strap and stitched that on as a dual pen/pencil holder while in the workshop.

I started with some 1.2mm thick Veg Tan leather. I got these bits quite cheap as they were offcuts on eBay, and are perfect for little projects and test like this. I cut a small square off this piece using my Exacto Knife.

I really like the penholder, it makes so much sense to put that there.
