* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Leatherwork Thread
« on: February 16, 2014, 06:50:23 pm »
I did not see another thread like this, but if it is a duplicate or in the wrong place, mods please feel free to do what you see fit!

I started working with leather about a year and a half ago when my partner requested I make a journal. It went from a bookbinding project, to a leather slip cover for a Moleskine, even though I had never worked with leather before.

The rest, as they say, is history.

I have made different kinds of bags, purses, rune sets, bookmarks, jewelry, hair ornaments - you name it.

I am going to be a showy show-off with a couple pictures below primarily of masks, since they are very sacred objects to me. But I also wanted to extend the invite for other people to post their own works done in leather! As well as an invite for questions, if anyone is interested in getting into the craft or just curious. <3

I'm hoping to start once it gets a bit warmer - I will have to do most of my work outside on the balcony - my cat's a bit too curious. I live less than a mile from the nearest Tandy's. :D I have a Leathercraft Beginners set I have not been able to start.

Oh jeez, back when I first started in Texas, my cat decided the messenger bag panel I was working on would make a good scratching post. I caught her before major damage was made and was able to repair the minor issues, but it was frustrating!

I do not know where the nearest Tandy's is from me, now. The core headquarters used to be really close to where I lived back in Fort Worth, but I moved to the Boston area a year and a half ago and have been ordering my stuff online from them. It is always weird to see the Fort Worth labels so far away!

Is the beginner's set for tooling the leather? I have not gotten around to doing that, yet. I mostly use a pyrography tool, carve, and/or mold. But tooled leather is soooo pretty!
