Handmade Leather Wallet

Here’s the first new project I’ve been hinting at over on Facebook (come find us at ashcraft creative): a wallet for Mark. He asked me over a year ago to make one for him, but couldn’t settle on a layout or design until now. He opted for a simple and small one he could keep in his front pocket, and designed an eagle holding a scroll to cross all the sections and folds. Here is the design cut out

Here it is carved

And here it is stained

All stitched up

The scroll refers to Romans 12:2 as a reminder that we should not conform to this world.




It was a really fun piece to carve, I got to try some new techniques. I’m so glad to have finally made him his wallet too, although he’s already talking about the next one…
