I found a design of a sugar skull I liked, made some changes to it, and drew it out on vellum paper. Then traced it onto the leather.
|Traced onto the leather and ready to start cutting. I start by cutting every line of the pattern into the leather with a swivel knife.|
|Done. I went back and touched up a ton of spots. As the leather dries (you wet the leather to tool it) it changes quite a bit. I totally botched the stars under his nose.|
|Mounted on the Fizik.|
And the finished set. I don't like the seat bag so I'm going to make another one that matches.
