Coming up on 3 years of owning my Glowforge, and I still have almost all of my sample materials from the original order. This includes the sample leather pieces, and as I’ve been obsessed with watching leathercraft videos on YouTube, as well as being jealous of every project that @jae posts, I decided it was time to dip my toes into the water.
Not to get your hopes up, this is by far one of the most basic of things you can do with leather and the GF. Just used it to make the cuts for size and Amazon purchased snaps. I needed some way to keep my unruly strap to my drone bag in check, because as well as the bag is designed, they thought it was okay to have the strap free from any sort of restraints. I’ve been carrying it by the strap, but there’s this slick handle on the side, and when in use, that darn strap just hangs down! So here’s where I made a solution that is meant to be temporary, but realistically, probably permanent.
That darn strap that just hangs about like a teenager
The new contained, less messy way, and you can see the built in handle
Different, better angle

I can carry the bag by the strap this way now, but it loses its tension, so going with the handle the bag already has is the better option, but having it not flapping around ready to trip me is reeeaaaal nice.
