Handmade leather Top tube pad

This t/t pad project took awhile partly due to my laziness and workload. Got a piece of leather hide (black + patterned) off Bricklane for a fiver, i must admit the size was rather generous.

Then i have to endure a rather painful process of pierce & sew method for which i have not owned a sewing machine and the proper tools for it. Nonetheless i was quite happy with the end result, slightly raw and minimalist. If you look closely, the (white)thread has to be painted with a black marker (yes i know i should hv gotten a black thread to save the trouble) hence the blue'ish effect :S


my so so craftmanship >:s
