Pepe and his hat are quite cool!
Very cool! Perfect gift, too. Is Pepe’s hat made of leather, or is it felt?
Sometimes the replacement is better than the original. Love the hat!
Nice! Bernina’s are great machines! I like how you used the underside of the leather for the etching on the top & the brim–was that because the top side didn’t etch well, or just for a fun contrast/design option?
Oh, happy “mistakes” can turn into great design choices Very familiar with those, too.
And yes, light colored leathers can often have the best results for etching!
(though I have many sources B&M store or on-line I’ll use before Tandy–apart from tools!).
Pepe is adorable … Looks great in his very cool hat!
