    Default Monitor/Ostrich Hood Saver

    Custom order, black ostrich with red monitor inlay with red suede liner. All my savers are entirely hand stitched including the liner and velco fasteners.

    Thanks Rich, I have just scratched the surface on where I want to take my Savers. There are so Many ideas that I have running thru my head I cannot wait to get to the next one. I know you appreciate (after looking at all your fine work) the work that goes into making something like this, especially the stitching by hand, there is a ton of it in each saver, never mind the expense of the leather and exotic hides I use.
    Hopefully many more to come.

    Otheron the 'lid' & possibly under the slot for the topknot, you don't have much. Unless the customer wants more intricate inlay. Hand Sewing City, here you go!

    Nice work Ken! How do you hand stitch all that and not be crippled after it? I have trouble doing 100 or so stitches a night without my hands cramping up.

    Thank you Chris, there is a lot of TOUGH Stitching on my savers,, tough hides, (the shark ones I made were extremely tough) and awkward, trust me, my hands are very sore after making one. I take my time and do one section at a time.
    I take a few Aleve pills , a few beers and a Hot tub after stitching. I tell my customers that making one is a love hate relationship,, I LOVE THE FINISHED PRODUCT,, BUT I HATE MAKE THEM!!!
