hooked on pinch pleats

Today I mangled a finger with a straight-peen hammer. It's an inconvenience for sure, but man does it hurt! So this post will be short. Don't think it's broken, but I expect to lose the nail and might need to do the hot-needle-throught-the-nail trick my husband suggested to let some blood out.

I was messing with hardware and leather belts - my preference for straps - while working on a couple of pinch pleated bags. I shared one such bag here. The hand-tying of so many pleats takes a while but I am smitten with the billowy results. No longer so smitten with the hammer.

this one work over the shoulder...

... or across the body
