Get Personal with Leatherology

Monogram

 

Nothing says thoughtful like a personalized leather gift. You may favor a more classic deboss—subtle blind with our classic Old Style. But your daughter is more of a gold foil Helvetica in large print kind of girl. Our goal: something for everyone.

OUR FONT STYLES

Leatherology offers two classic typefaces to choose from (shown below), and as long as your product allows, you may monogram up to 5 characters per item – capital letters, numbers, and the following symbols: period (.), apostrophe (‘), comma (,), and ampersand (&). In addition to blind deboss, we also have 22-karat gold foil or silver options as well.

TYPE-OLOGY

 

With the addition of Old Style to our monogram library, we’re already anticipating the next font to be added to the collection. Should we go with something bold or narrow? Italic and stylized? The options are endless, inspiration is everywhere and we plan to match our selection of monogram options to our unwavering assortment of styles and leather collections.

DIY: Chain Trimmed iPad Sleeve

ipad16

With stunning home, art and fashion editorials, along with unparalleled beauty and style tips, HonestlyWTF is quickly becoming one of our favorite blogs. The blog itself is visually spectacular, but we’re spending most of our time on the DIY pages where the bloggers, one a stylist and the other a designer, have made sure we keep busy. This is just one of the many projects we insist you try at home.

You’ll need:

  • Leatherology iPad sleeve
  • 30 inches of stainless steel curb chain
  • 5 yards of waxed linen cord
  • all purpose rotary punch
  • an embroidery needle
  • wire cutter or bolt cutter (optional)
  • scissors

Start by setting the rotary punch to the smallest hole setting. Create a hole in the upper right corner, making sure to punch just outside the seam but without cutting into the outer edge of the leather sleeve.ipad2

Each chain link is approximately 5 millimeters apart, therefore the holes should be spread apart with the same distance. Continue punching holes around the perimeter of the sleeve.

Thread the needle with the waxed linen cord and tie a double knot at the end. Pull the thread through the first hole and pass the needle through the same hole again, making the first stitch.ipad4?scl=1

Pull the needle through the bottom of the first chain link and push it through the top of the second hole. Pull tightly.

Tie a double knot to finish the entire stitch. Trim the ends of the knots with scissors and cut away any excess chain with a wire or bolt cutter.

Now go back with fingers or a pair of tweezers to pull out any original broken stitches.
