Hide & Sleek - The last pair of braces you'll ever need!

IMG_9189This one's a bit of fun... Seen a few pairs of leather braces online and thought... why not? I used the bridal strap leather I made the blanket harness with and made the 'Last pair of braces I'll ever need!' With the edition of some extra buttons on on my jeans, I've been out and about in these braces continuously...

My funky Jazzatier friend Mao has already requested a pair but with clips...

Send me a request for a pair yourself... or belt up!

Hide & Sleek - Women's tote hand bag

IMG_9052This one is my best project yet. Commissioned by a friend as a gift for his girlfriend, he wanted a women's version of my large tote bag.

Combining suede together with the tan leather, incorporating inside and outside pockets, the design transforms from a simple basic tote to a more sophisticated  women's handbag...

The resulting bag is my favourite project yet and going by the recipients response, hers too...

Check out photos and see for yourself... I think this design is a keeper!IMG_9097

Hide & Sleek - Blanket harness

IMG_9134I recently managed to find a real steal on eBay, a vintage Woolrich wool blanket... for a tenth of it's retail price.I could believe my eyes after my friend dropped it over from NYC, it looked new! Stunning colours and fantastically warm... very apt for our late false starting summer!!

Not being able to resist a new project and after recently buying some new thick harness leather for another project, I put this simple blanket harness together ready for our first hot sunny weekend and pic-nic... if it ever arrives?

I think the pair go together rather well!!

Hide & Sleek - MacBook Air sleeve

IMG_9112This one was for a friend who liked my Mac and iPad sleeves and wanted something similar for his Mac Book air... so I made a felt and Leather hybrid of the two, with a double layer of felt and leather pocket for extra protection. (pictures shown with my iPad) IMG_9117

Hide & Sleek - Florists pouch

IMG_9020This one is a commission for a florist friend's business partner and fellow florist. Loosely based on the hairdressers pouch this one is a slightly simpler symmetrical design with tool pockets concealed inside. So whether at work or just out and about the pouch doesn't look like a builders belt but an attractive leather accessory. Hopefully the birthday girl will like the pouch as much as I'm pleased with my work.
