Leather trinket dish

Leather disk and reels of thread So, I made the felt-lined leather dish I was planning last week and I reckon it has turned out OK.  Stitching something so small with 12 seams on the machine was a fiddle, as was finishing off all those ends of thread neatly, but the end result was worth it.  I even like the underside.

Underside of leather dishI’ve posted a tutorial on Instructables (Leather and Felt Trinket Dish) which includes a PDF template for a dish of this size (4″ diameter) and full instructions for designing your own of any size and with any number of seams.

Leather dish with earringsIt could hold earrings on a dressing table or paperclips on a desk.  Anything really.

I live and work in West Yorkshire.  I've always enjoyed crafts of all types, from woodwork to lace-making.  I also enjoy anything mathematical, which makes knitting a favourite pastime, especially complicated designs.  I've been advising businesses and industry on environmental matters for 30 years and also have an interest in green living, especially where it saves me money. I live with my husband and our Maine Coon in a 100-year-old cottage that constantly needs something doing to it.  Fortunately, I enjoy DIY too.
