Renn Tel's soft parts W.I.P.
« on: Jul 06, 2014, 11:46 PM »
up first on my wip is the vest this was the most intimidating. Learned alot and see what I can do different next build. I haven't had a helping hand with pictures of me wearing It. I still have to attach the shoulder bells, and stitch the hems. Based on Jango's vest, mixed with Boba shoulder bells. Used deer skin. still trying to figure out neck seal. Want to base it on Boba's. Sewing skill still being developed.  The vest sits better on me than theduck tape form,

It looks good. I myself am pretty handy with one of my four sewing machines. They are my expensive habit that I picked up when I decided to quit smoking five years ago. I look forward to your progress!

been putting this off for a bit mostly because I hate sewing.  :laugh:  but scratch build test NO.1 hope it works. have only ever experimented with shaping leather but never really anything for a project of any kind. and wouldn't you know it I am out of thread..  :laugh:    I think this will work once I get thread and sew them luckly only making 6 of them

Yea me too but if you have a Tandy Leather factory outlet near you the persons working there are very knowledgable , I'm lucky as I have to leather companies within an hour of me so I bother them with my random questions while I am in their area. I'm a dabbler, I dabble with dabbleable crafts the more the craftier!

   I get mine from an Amish leather dealer/saddle maker about an hour away, he sells raw leather by the sheet. He told me he wouldn't mind sharing knowledge, but he hasn't been there last few times I've been. And his wife doesn't like me for whatever reason. I have been nothing but kind and respectful.  :)  I think its cause I'm tattooed and ponytailed.  :laugh:  ....I'm a crafter  :) my hands have built knives, bows, arrows, knapped flint arrow heads.list goes on,  :laugh:  but I am finally building probs, of course first year well few months. it's something I have always wanted to do. just once again have a lot to learn.  ;D
