Zippered Pouch

My leather journey continues with the Beginners Workshop at Amblard Leather Atelier and to say that the latest finished project was challenging would be an understatement. Up till now, the techniques were not that different. Then BAM! A project with so many new things to learn and execute – curved corners, single layer finishing, mold, wee pull (you won’t believe how tough it is to finish that teeny tiny zipper pull!), and all that goes with shortening/fitting the zipper! There were definitely a few oopsies that required some creative fixing but all in all, I am quite pleased with the end result but would LOVE to do another to perfect the new skills… one day!

There are limited color palette for smooth leather so I decided to stick with my favorite dark green.

And it’s lined with one of my favorite pistachio green grain leather! 😀

Four more projects to my TOTE! It’s important to have lofty goals, right?
