Tried my hands at sewing a chappal with my hands. The leather was again from a scrap leather dealer in Ghee Kanta, Ahmedabad. The sole is reclaimed tyre rubber. The best thing about custom made footwear is that it fits like a glove :D.
The cheap awl I was using had a plastic handle which came off very soon. Used MSeal for making the awl handle. Embedded it with seed from the manjadi, the bead tree, and some other baubles I had lying around. This also gives it added grip.
I like to sketch while travelling. Most often one of my compartments of my bag has all the pencils, pens etc. But I tended to misplace it within my bag. Sewed this holder with scrap leather, with place for each individual piece of pen, pencil, blade etc.
I had an old headphone lying around with a busted mike. The audio was pretty good though. I used some scrap leather I had around and sheathed the speakers with it to give it some renewed oomph. The soft suede leather feels good to my ears. The future version will have detachable covers for washing.
