You: using either metric or imperial measurements
Me, enlightened: using half metric half imperial

thouuuugh it is too long, I'll have to trim the top of the pen holding parts ;_;

aaaactually that looks like shit so I'm just gonna undo all the stitches, shorten the whole thing out, and start again 😩

at least I already did the punching so I'll only have to stitch again 😔

stitching that whole thing; ~4h
unstitching it: ~1h

also my leather is all creased now but Iiii think that's fine

Oookay so I re-stitched the center, buuuut unforeseen consequence: now the flap can’t work. This can only work with shorter pens. At this point I think I’m gonna finish it for myself and then make a better, working version as the gift I was intending this to be

(First pic is with a standard-size sharpie, second is with a smaller-size fountain pen)

re: leatherposting 

picture, if you will, a guy, thinking "I need to remember to put this thing in at my fifth stitch!" about 20 minutes ago. Now, try to figure out whether this guy remembered to put the thing in at his fifth stitch.

re: leatherposting 

Now all I need to do is thin the flap so it fits in the buckle, and then burnish all the edges!

And then start making the second one that’s to size lol 😓

re: leatherposting 

Well, it might be too small for full sized pens, but with 75% it looks pretty good :)

Got a few dimensions to fix on the next one, but for now I’m gonna burnish the edges so I can call that one done

you, clever: calculate the bending radius and add material as needed
me, an absolute moron: adds material, then just bends it around a pen to see where to punch holes (sharpie marks on this picture)

Afficher le fil de discussion

leatherposting 

Alright I’ve punched the holes on both sides, next step is stitching (but that’ll be tomorrow)

Time to uh do some work since it’s work hours yknow? But I’ll finish that later today

Suddenly understand the expression “cutting corners” a lot more directly 😬
