Paisley Guitar Strap

Posted by Fallon Foster on

This was another of those orders that I had to photograph too quickly so I could get it to the post quickly enough.  I'm getting quicker with these paisley patterns though despite changing the design for each order.

Quote on a Guitar Strap

Posted by Fallon Foster on

A young woman in Texas wanted to give her partner a gift this year of a guitar strap carved with a quote her partner had given her.  This order came in pretty much at the wire but I had -just- enough time to get it finished before the cut off for Christmas delivery.  I finished the guitar strap about an hour before the post office closed so I didn't really have time to set up any good shots with the finished product.  I did try something new this time around by stitching the strap while standing up.  This was markedly...

Paisley Pattern Guitar Strap

Posted by Fallon Foster on

I have to say, this was a challenging commission.  The client wanted a larger than normal guitar strap tooled from end to end with no borders using a complex paisley pattern and they wanted it within a few weeks.  First I had to figure out what a paisley pattern is and it turns out it's a floral pattern with a heavy use of fractals and Fibonacci sequences, essentially a worst case scenario for leather carving.  Lots of precisely placed identical elements that only vary in size and only minutely at that.  That would probably explain why all the leather paisely...
