    The real interesting thing is to see what you can come up with first time around, no matter what you'll have that sense of pride that you did it.

    This is the one I made last month. My needles just arrived today, so I'm hoping to add some stitching soon. =)

    That does look good too, that leather once you wear it! will get a wicked patina to it......are you stitching this one? or trying another when your needles arrive?

    Thanks! I was thinking about stitching this one, but the nakedness of it on my Hammy is starting to grow on me. Do you think some stitching would round out the look?
