How to Make a Leather Apple Watch Band

In this Project video, I show you how to make a Leather Apple Watch Band.  I finally took some time to sit down and design three different styles based audience request.  The Apple Watch is extremely popular and having a custom leather watch band made for them is a common request.

Our goal with this video is to show my process for making the three different styles and to hopefully help anyone try their hand at making these.  If you are looking for that perfect Christmas item to offer to your customers as gift ideas, then this is a great one.

As with all of our Project Videos, we have created a Companion Pattern Pack.  In this pack, you will find all the cut patterns for all three styles as well as 6 different tooling patterns for each style.  If you would like to purchase the Companion Pack for this Project Video, then Click Here and grab that.

The buckles that I used for these bands are made by Rockin Out Silver.  These buckles are affordable and look great!

How to Make a Leather Shavekit

We created this video, “How to Make a Leather Shavekit,” in the fall of 2017.  I just realized that I never posted it to the website.  So this is not a new video technically, but if you do subscribe to our YouTube Channel then it may be new to you.  

In this video, I show you my process for making a tooled leather shavekit. These toiletry bags are good projects whether you are new to leatherwork or a seasoned veteran. They are great sellers as well.

In the video I walk you through my entire process of making the shavekit as well as tell you the different weights of leather used to make it. I also have a companion pattern pack that goes with this video if you would like to purchase that. It contains all the cut patterns as well as six different tooling patterns.

If you would like to purchase the companion pattern pack, you can check that out by Clicking Here.
