Here's my first attempt at using leather on a weapon prop. It started it's life as a nerf spiderman dart shooter. I really enjoyed the leatherworking process and hopefully future work will look more complex and refined. Let me know what you think!
Unfortunately this one got damaged while I was drilling holes so it no long fires the nerf darts. It still makes a really cool piece for your steampunk outfit...if you have the same arm size as I do, hehe. I will post another photo of the assembly laid out so you can see the button snaps that hold everything in place
