February 18, 2013: Day 5
I would have posted yesterday, but the weather was not agreeable to take pictures outside in the sunlight…too overcast and rainy 😦
Nevertheless, today makes up for it 😀
The shoulder strap turned out very nice and is soft enough to be comfortable without rubbing Amelia the wrong way…
Here’s a couple of pics showing the hand rubbed finish of the case. I used Atom Wax for the front and back to retain a certain amount of rigidity. The cinching straps and hinge have a healthy dose of lanolin and beeswax to aid in flexibility so they won’t crack over time.
A couple of more pics in the sunshine. I didn’t mention it earlier, but I also lined the inside cover with a piece of the lambskin.
Last two pics today…just wanted to show off the gleam of hand rubbed leather in the very welcome sunshine 😀
I am still waiting for the shipment to arrive that has the edge coating. With today being a holiday (President’s Day) hopefully it will arrive tomorrow and I can complete this project.
I have finally decided to give a name to her iPad case…I will post it upon completion ;~)
If anyone (except Amelia, that is) wants to try to guess what I’ve named it, send me a message…LOL…I will confirm or deny if you’re correct…
