Achievement Unlocked

I’ve made stuff of leather before, bracelets and a simple credit card wallet and Gkid’s COVID journal…but I’ve been apprehensive of taking on anything that required a lot of stitching or anything other than straight lines.

Well, no more. My hands cramp into claws if I try to grasp anything, and the pads of my right thumb and forefinger are numb, but I did it!!!

Okay! I totally want to make this.

What do you think of a newbie doing this? Do you have a link to the pattern?

I’m pretty much a newbie to leather, and I did it, so yeah, go for it!

My first thought was “Very Mad Max-ish”. So I think you accomplished the apocalypse survivor look. :slight_smile:

In the mask? I could breathe just fine with the holes provided. I did some shaping overnight and haven’t had time to try it on again today (homeschooling!) but I’m thinking with it fitted to my face better the holes might be partially blocked.

I kinda want to remake it without the holes, and with filtration apparatus sewn in to the side pieces… but first, Hubs wants a mask of his own! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Hah! Totally fooled me. I was pretty impressed with myself for making mine look just as good as one they used on the series! :roll_eyes:
