Hidden snaps underneath the side straps in addition to center strip; this baby holds strong.

OMG I LOVE this pattern. Canโ€™t wait to create a matching set of wrist and ankle cuffs for myself this weekend.

My First Leather Good Made with Cricut Maker

front view of leather guitar pick holder

Pattern is self drafted from others Iโ€™ve seen online. Technically itโ€™s a guitar pick holder – I thought they were so cool when I saw one online. Mine will keep Benadryl handy for sunscreen emergencies, and maybe a tiny bit of cash. Itโ€™s only 2.25 inches wide, so itโ€™s definitely not a wallet.

I got to practice pattern drawing (this is version 2.0 after some R&D blunders) and leather cutting with the knife blade on my Cricut Maker. That was the big deal for me: I wanted to know how well Cricut cuts leather. Answer: โ€œperfectlyโ€.

The leather is black pigskin with a foil printed hair design. Metallic, shimmers in the light. Unbelievably cool.
