    Wow! Fantastic. I'm sure the recipient wiil be proud to carry his pens in it. I pray that both come back unscathed.

    Going back to the Three Emperors case I decided to go with my original plan and use the Antique leather dye.

    After punching the holes I started to apply the Antique dye.

    Time to trial fit the inner section.

    I had a confidence crisis this morning over the colour of the back panel/front flap.
    After thinking of dyeing the whole case black I decided to apply more antique dye to the back / front flap and get on with it.

    The back section has a kydex panel which provides extra protection this is glued in place and covered in suede.

    The securing strap has had some blue detail stitching applied to it.

    Thanks for looking

    I made a template to help with the stitching lines.

    20170921_161745[1] by my0771, on Flickr

    Once I had marked out the stitching lines I made the holes and started stitching unfortunately I managed to get a knot in the thread and in trying to undo it snapped the thread.

    I don not like to have joints in my stitching especially on small cases so I cut out the stitching and started over.

    When I had cut and waxed a new length of thread I continued stitching.

    Now the stitching is complete I will trim the edges and prepare them for finishing.

    My Plan was for the flap to end just above the design on the case.

    Box Ticked...... Getting the strap in the correct position and the right size for the flap.

    TICK

    Trimming is very scary one wrong move and the case is scrap.. Measure twice cut once as my old foreman used to tell me. I have trimmed the flap and that is it for today cutting through one thickness of leather and suede is one thing cutting double thickness of everything needs a steady hand and a freshly sharpened blade. Time for sharpening
