Leather has a mind of its own sometimes.  Looks good to me and does what you need  :like:

I'd say these aren't your first tries at leatherworking.

I do a lot of leather, my first tries were when I was a kid and needed something to carry a fixed blade I snatched from the yard at our farm. I wasn't really allowed (but wasn't explicitly forbidden also  :whistle: ) to carry knives so no folding knife back then. I didn't have any idea what exactly I was doing, it was quite before the youtube tutorials era, but I got one of my mother's older purses which had a bit thicker bottom. Cut out a piece and stitched a sleeve style sheath for my knife. I was so happy I could now stick it in my pants (cause I didn't make a belt loop)  and walk around with it :D. Sadly I don't have pictures of it but it might still be around in that old house my grandmother lived in.
Quite some time has passed since then, I feel like I live in completely different world now. Yet some things don't change - I still love knives (and I now have considerate amount of them) and I still deal with leather (but now I use appropriate type of leather and know what I'm doing). And even though I now live in big (for our country) city I often sheath carry my knives and almost always my multitools. Here are some photos of my leatherwork, hope you enjoy them.

Those are some nice pancakes and basket weaving! Wow!
My first attempt was not even leather, I bought a nice flashlight and it was bigger then a mag lite so it wouldn’t fit in the combo sheath, so I spent like 3hrs making one out of stuff I had laying around, because I wanted to carry the new flashlight! Then I tried my first attempt at leather which totally sucked, but did the job, but then made a pancake and ended up using that for like a year cause I liked it, wasn’t the best but worked! I love pancakes! I just had one made for my sak

Thank you. Nowadays it's rarely for fun, most of the time it's for work.

I'd say you're good enough to transition up to leather.

Sadly that's the other way around  :oops:
I usually do my pouches out of vegetable tanned  leather, but this time I needed something light and that could be packed in a pocket when not needed

I started to carry a scissors for leather work lately so I make a sheath for it.  I think it turned rather swell.

Wow nice job, and when you no longer need it for scissors maybe a slingshot?

Sorry, but I disagree. It didn't turn out swell, it turned out great! Well done.

For about a year or so ago I made a sleeve for my bonus son to have his busscard in and the ability to tie it to his pack so he won't loose it at school, today my oldest doughter got a busscard so I made one for her as well. It's quite quick work but it should hold up and there is no point in going the extra mile on corners etc. It will live in her pack just like his tied in with paracord

I remember when you made the bus card leather slip.  Simple, effective, and should protect the card for a good long while.

So far so good! He has used his every other week but gets banged around all school year and still holds up
