I pretty much had The Ladies in mind when I made this Nouveau Poppy wallet, tho it would work out just fine for the more distinguished men out there too… With our discriminating tastes for life’s finery’s! Or it could be I’m just talking a load of bull! Either way these are up in the shop now too!

Here’s a newer pic of another tote bag I finished a couple days ago. Sometimes it’s such a pain in the butt tying to capture the pieces I’ve done, especially when it’s in this 2D, Instagramy, only the size of your phone, sorta way!? If that makes sense? Haha! What can ya do, ya know? This is up for sale on the website: www.realclassleather.com

Happy Saturday everyone! I just posted the first of many new bags that will be for sale on the Real Class leather website, and this buddies a steal too! A Sweet southwestern style tote with carved California Poppies! I also kept the price down since my industrial sewing machine skillz are a little wonky still, and there’s a few wandering stitches here and there… So it’s “Slightly Flawed”, just like yours truly, but totally stylish & built to last regardless!! 16”L x 18”H with 26” handles make this a bag you can bring anywhere! I made myself one, and I use it constantly! Coolbeans, Mane! #leathercraft #leathercarving #leatherwork #madeintheusa

Good evening everyone! Here’s how the dying went yesterday, well technically today, at 4:30 in the morning… What can I say? I’ve always been a nighttime bird… Anyhoo, I ended up running the picture thru a filter so the detail could be seen better, since its all done in blacks and dark greys, it was a pain in the but to get a good photo of it!? It looks bad-ass in person tho, so that’s what really counts! I’m working on the main part of the strap right now, so, hopefully I’ll have some pictures up tomorrow of the finished product… For now tho, I say Good Day! #leathercraft #leathercarving #leatherwork #madeintheusa

I’m in the middle of an order at the moment and thought I’d take a picture of this part of it, the adjustable part of this guitar strap, since its been fun doin some good old-fashioned Sheridan style flowers… I’m excited to dye it too, cuz everything’s gonna be different shades of black when it’s done! So this will be a fun experiment! So here’s the “Before”…. the next post will be the “After”… Yay! Up all night, sleep deprivation always adds to the fun! #leathercraft #leathercarving #leatherwork

Here’s a big ol tote bag I’ve been making for myself, as a prototype, and as a much needed project while on the road the past few weeks. Normally (and with future bags) I’d use the sewing machine to do all of this, and it would have been finished rather quickly, but I’ve been doing everything by hand with this sucker, which has turned it into a bit of a pain in the butt… A much needed, pain in the butt, but a pain none the less! I’ve found that if I don’t have something to do that’s constructive while traveling someplace, I get insanely bored, so I’ve been trying to pick up some more “mobile” crafts to do, when I know I’ll be sitting someplace for extended periods… That way, anywhere I’m at, like the DMV, my parents house, a bar with friends, strip club (ha!), or anywhere else you might find me on any given day, I’ll be happily sittin at chatting while fumbling around with something in my hands… They truly are the devils playthings if I don’t put em to work!
This bag is big too! 16”L x 18”W x 6”D… I can fit alotta stuff in it! #handmade #leathercraft #leatherwork #leathercarving #sewing #madeintheusa p.s. the bottom leather is a really nice deep blue/green. Its just a little hard to see! Later taters!

Howdy everyone! Here the first of two posts I’ve got for you guys this fine Monday evening… I’ve been a bit obsessed with sewing and textiles as of late, and have had a goal since I was young, to get to a point in my life where I make all my own clothes, and here’s one I just finished last night that turned out pretty darn good (besides my sloppiness with a sewing machine…), and the first of many new experiments into the wonderful world of commercial sewing patterns & and fabric designs. I’ve been a bit obsessed with Caftan’s as of late too. So there’s probably gonna be a lot of these, since they’re so easy and comfortable… Add “All Things Herringbone” to that list of obsessions too, which is still odd to me. Honestly don’t know where that one came from, I just know that it “Is”! Next up, Tote Bags…. #handmade #madeintheusa #sewing #tailoring #newobsessions
