Clutch Wallet

Reason #879 I love my Glowforge: I had an idea for a clutch wallet the other day and this is the result. The requirements: Five card pockets, two places for cash, and a pen loop. Measures 7.75 x 4 inches closed. The color? Hand dyed a cool blue/gray made using two different color dyes. A truly unique piece. This is the prototype version but pretty close to the final I think.

Looks like a nice design. I noticed how nice your edges look. Is there something special that you do to make them look so good? :grinning:

This is lovely! I’ve been working with leather for the very first time, so I can certainly appreciate something good when I see it. This also reminds me that I have a long ways to go in my learning curve.

Thank you! I love the fabric as well. I’ve got several different patterns for my liners. This one is really cool too:

Thanks! The edges all get sanded twice with a 100 and then a 220 grit. Then burnished with saddle soap and water and then a final burnish with beeswax. Quite a process but well worth the effort.

I haven’t done anything in leather yet so this is new to me, but yours looks fantastic.

Amazing! Hand sewn or machine? And maybe stupid question, is the logo engraved with the laser or is that a stamp/pressed in?

Thanks! It’s sewn on my leather stitcher. My logo is stamped in. By the way, the stamp I made on the ‘forge too.

I have always thought of a “Clutch Wallet” as a standard emotional reaction I feel frequently rather than a thing. However yours is very nice :heart_eyes: , and I discover that the one I have had (made of trigger cloth) for 50 years is such a design. The reason that I have had it for 50 years is about 18 inches of (in my case) parachute cord sewn on with a double-diamond button knot at the end that ties easily to my belt. :grin:
