I wanted to create a range I choices for small card holder. I have about 10 variations… One of them is doing cross stitch in the leather…
Punching the holes neatly was quite a chore…. Stitching was even a bigger feat – holes were tight. And the thumbs and fingers were aching badly.
I told myself, this is handicraft with love and I do it for passion. That’s when I decided to coin all my envelope series ENVELOVE. I had many attempts to get the shape right. Over 20 prototypes and found the balance between the leather thickness and the template. Each envelope cutting were fine tuned according to leather type and thickness.
Still room for improvement, and its really ENVELOVE!
