couple o' fun projects

i decided to try to play with leather last night, and here is the result of testing out all of the different points on my toy~
haha i know, it's just a mishmash of blah, but i had fun and that's all that matters XD

and today was my roomie alex and her twin sister's birthday, so i made them some earrings! the ear threader one is for alex because she thought the leaf earrings i just (half) made were cute and that they were cool because she had never seen ear threaders before :)

haha thank you, but that's just burning a bit of leather, not tooling it ;) i don't think it really even qualifies as pyrography haha... maybe some day!

hi! the leatherwork looks really neat - you are using a burning tool? could make great book covers too!

yep yep, a burning tool! :D it's so fun to play with! i would love to use it on book covers, but i haven't quite made it to the point where i will go buy a big order of leather yet. but maybe some day! :)
