Dressing up an old mud flap
I’ve added a bit of pizzazz to an old Berthoud mud flap by tooling a Celtic knot design into a piece of vegetable tan leather and stitching it on. It’s quite a process and takes some specialized tools and leather tooling experience. Here’s a few pictures of the process.
I’ll mount this on my bike in a few weeks and post the result. Tandy Leather is the best (if not only) source for leather and tools and there are plenty of YouTube videos to pick this hobby up fairly quickly. If you’re interested, start with one of Tandy’s beginner kits for about 30 bucks. They come with a few simple practice projects, an instruction video and all the basic tools.
