Crucifix Leather Yeti Sleeve

So I’ve already shown pictures of this one on instagram because I couldn’t help myself, but here’s the whole story.

My brother in law always wears a Benedictine Cross necklace, so when we drew his name for the Christmas gift exchange, we decided to incorporate it into the design of his gift.  He already has and uses a Yeti, so a sleeve for it was perfect.  I had my sister sneak a photo of the cross which apparently was pretty difficult since he always wears it, and found out his favorite verse to include on it.

The design wraps all the way around so it’s hard to capture it all in photos, but the verse spread across the seam with some wheat, since John 6:35 is about Jesus being the Bread of Life. 20161222_14171720161222_141709

Here are a few progress shots, first is just cut into the leather, second is tooled but before dye.
