Passport Wallet

I just finished this Passport Wallet to hold my essentials during the El Diablo Run.  I'm pretty pumped on how it came out.  Last project of 2012! Happy New Year!!!

I wanna be Vannin'!

My old neighbor Nick has a buddy that is selling his 64 Econoline.  I went and checked it out and fell in love with it (of course).  I've never had an old car or truck and I'm trying to make some moves to get this van.

It has a 289 V8 with a C6 trans.

 I love the stance on those wheels.  It runs and drives but needs some attention here and there.  That's the perfect car project in my opinion.  Something I can drive around while working on it over time!

It's a long shot for me to get it...basically have to sell my Pathfinder so who knows how long that will take.  Maybe the stars will align and I will be cruising around in this van!

"Clutch" for my Mother-In-Law

My Mother-In-Law is a very talented seamstress.  She is always making clothes and gifts for my daughter.  She also has been very supportive of me since I started working with leather.

I made this "Clutch" for her as a Christmas gift.

 I really appreciate the kind words of encouragement from my friends and family.  Those comments keep me motivated to become better at leatherwork!

They Got My Vote

The guys from Gas Monkey Garage built a bike I'd be proud to own.  Hell, my next bike hopefully will be a slab shovel and it will look very similar to this!  It's PINK!!!!

The show is still going on as I type this, so I still don't know who won, but this is the bike that SHOULD win!

Dash Panel Progress

Spent a little more time on the dash panel for my Shovelhead.  Got it dyed and ready to lace.  I'm proud of how this is turning out.

Email me if you have a leather project in mind!
