Gorgeous Leather watchband!

My husband Lance collects watches.  This year, for Christmas, he got a beautiful Steinhart Ocean Green.  He saw several sites online that were selling leather watchbands made from vintage leather ammo cases from WWII.  He decided to try and make his own.  Now Lance has never worked with leather before - but that didn't deter him...he is amazing at figuring out things!  he ordered a few tools online and  VOILA.  


Hand cut from an old belt, hand stitched, hand distressed and hand embossed (with some of my letter stamps and a dime!  He has since made 2 more and they just keep getting better!

gorgeous is right! How the heck is he sewing them together? Do you have an industrial machine that will sew on leather?

I see a new Etsy store on the horizon....

What a cool project! Good for Lance (I guess the gander doesn't fall far from the goose).
