Tonight’s experiment. D-ring through leather instead of sewn on top. This should give you the capability to place a D-ring at any angle on your work piece. The downside is a double thickness of leather on the backside of this connection. Skiving down the workpiece in the loop a little bit is helpful in reducing the book though.
If it was a production piece I’d be tempted to throw a line of stitching on either side of the connection as well. Otherwise it’s likely to pull out under load. – – – #Leather #Leatherwork #D–Ring #Experiment #Win #makesomething
