Leatherworking…. harder than it looks!!

I have been making some leather collars.  I don’t have a sewing machine strong enough to sew through leather, so I have to poke the holes myself.  I am SURE that I look ridiculous to my neighbors….. I am out on my front porch (to have a concrete back) with my mat so my tools don’t get ruined….  pounding the HECK out of a tool to try to cut a small slit in the leather for the “pokey” part of the buckle to feed through.  I also had to hand “poke” all the holes in the leather so I can hand sew (using some sinew) a piece of leather to the back.  It looks great (I think) but it is a LOT of time and work.  I can’t lie… I am addicted….  🙂
