Barking mad

Ok so am I nuts or what

Got a request from a customer to make a bridle for her horse HOLLY
She wanted her horses name on it or something similar so I'm making this -



Just to give you an idea - the pattern has to be HAND DRAWN onto the leather with inkless ballpoint pen ( mustn't scratch it ) and then each stitch has to be marked out one at a time. I then have to very carefully hand stitch the pattern on. It took a whole day just to do the pattern.

I will post some pics of the finished item when it's complete.

The Nutty Saddler strikes again ( either that or I just got so bored with the norm )

That is really lovely! Are you going to die the berries red? I think that would be pretty but maybe the customer wouldn't.
