5 Minutes of Fame


I was on a local tv show: Studio 5, showing some of the fun things you can do with leather. It was SO much fun to do the segment & I’m incredibly grateful for help from my sister (she let me take her car & she watched the kiddos) and Jill!


A lot of the things you see in this segment you’ve seen here already, but there were a few new goodies in there. Notice my headband? We didn’t talk about it in the segment, but I used the pattern pieces from the fringed necklace & glued them onto a headband. Also – there’s a little tutorial at the end showing you how to braid leather with two closed ends (at about 5:30). It’s magic! Here are some quick links to the tutorials I mentioned in the segment:
