Slow beginnings

This week in the studio I am working on two harnesses.  So far I've dyed some leather, prepared several yards of lace, added tongues and rollers to a couple dozen buckles and cut and detailed the collar pieces.  I have at least fifteen hours worth of work invested in this project, but you wouldn't know from looking at my work desk...
Yep, those two little baggies are all I have to show for my efforts!  

The early stages of harness making are so slow.  Hopefully by this time tomorrow, I will actually have something that looks vaguely harness like.  That's not too much to ask, right?


  1. If you're motivated, it's definitely not too much to ask!! The slow work may be tedious, but it's that same small stuff that makes or breaks the finished product :D Keep your head up, Jen, it'll get better!!

  2. Really looking forward to seeing these come along. When I get organised I am going to order a heap of lace, buckles etc from Rio Rondo and make a harness for my Breyer Journeyman.
