Day 365: The final project!
September 19, 2013
Well folks, I did it. I made 365 things in 365 days. I can’t believe I made it through. Some days I really didn’t want to make anything at all, but overall it was a really fun project. I’m so glad that I did it, but I’m also so glad it’s done. This project has been amazing for me in so many ways. It even pushed me to start my own business selling some of the things I’ve made here: Fitzy. Now that it’s over I’m looking forward to spending even more time on the business, and taking a little break.
Thanks for watching, and enjoy the final project!

Day 362: Black Fitzy Mystery Braid Bracelet
September 16, 2013
I got some black leather dye the other day, so I decided to try it out by making a black version of the Mystery Braid Bracelet. I’m loving the high contrast between the dye and undyed portions of the leather.

Day 356: Dyed Leather Sunglass Case
Sept. 10, 2013
I decided to start experimenting with leather dyes this week. Everything I’ve read about hand dyeing leather this way, led me to believe that it would be very tricky to get the colour even without spraying on the dye. When I first applied the dye, as you can see, it went on pretty patchy, but when it dried the colour was quite even. I’m pretty pumped to be able to get a nice deep caramel colour on leather when ever I want.
