Thanks guys! Very much appreciated! To be honest I made an arse of this one and only just managed to salvage it. Made it too small originally! Lesson learned the hard way!!!

Thanks Warren! I'm still trying to get the hang of it myself mate! To be honest I quite enjoy the leatherworking. There's just something satisfying about it and the results come quick. This one only took a few hours and I've got no leatherworking tools whatsoever! I'm waiting for a stitch-groover to arrive....if it ever gets here!!

Thanks Mark! I like danglers. It gives more freedom of movement when i'm up and down on my fishing chair.

Nice work, but I particularly like the button thingy you have on the strip of leather through the lanyard hole. I've been struggling with tieing knots in my leather, but that looks really nice. What would you call such a thing?

It's just a lanyard-bead. I knocked it up using leftover handle and pin bits. Just adds that extra little touch i think. I like them.
