I love the thought that ghosts view Ouija Boards with as much disdain as we mortals do with telemarketers and robocalls
I bought some scrap leather from Michael’s and picked up some waxed thread and leather needles.
Found a pattern on The Art of Manliness:
Here’s the backside, in case more context was needed:
The Glowforge didn’t fully cut through the leather, so I had to pull the cuts apart, which worked fine except all the fringey fibers along all the edges. I’ll probably take a quick flame to the edges to burn all the fibers down, and once I learn how to burnish, I’ll probably do that.
Welp, there’s my real name. Secret’s out, guys.
The inside stitch on the right was the first time I’ve ever attempted a hand saddle stitch, so it looks pretty bad, but I like it. It’s a little reminder of the beginning of a little journey of learning new techniques, so I’m not mad at that.
I also enjoyed the stitching process. Little zen moments and the points of hyperfocus. An enjoyable time.
10/10 Can’t wait to try a new pattern.
