Since moving to Cambridge, me and the missus decided to get some bikes to move around. I got a Raleigh Detour and she a Dawes Red Feather 2010. And then I got the idea of doing a small bike tool roll with leather after seeing this. I also found other examples.
So, I decided to get some leather scraps or cut-offs and see what I could do.
From a piece like the above one, I did this:
Not pretty at all… but I still had lots of leather left overs, so what else could I do with it? Well, apparently, lots! Like, book markers!
Getting the leather ended up being quite easy, from here. But I think that in a big city it would be more difficult. I did find people selling it in on eBay, but it’s always better to sample the product before buying it. And so, I still have leather left overs… what else should I do with it? Or maybe I should start selling this… 😉
