Tool Wrap

Lord Ihone Munro, AS XL

Projects Completed December, 2015

If you're looking for a fun little project, this is a good one. For beginners, it's a great exercise in stitching. For the experienced, it's a great way to turn a doodle out with purpose. A pretty straight forward design, I set the spacing in the tool segments to be the width of the throwing knives that it would be holding, then stitched in the binding strap with some simple D rings to tie it together. For the design itself, I used a Norse inspired dog format - allowing me to practice at shading with my pyrography pens.

Once it was all stitched up, I also Aussie conditioned it to help protect the burns. All in all, I was very pleased with it.

The raw pyrography completed, before conditioning the leather. The shading really stood out nicely.

The wrap all stitched up with hardware.
