DIY Project: Leather Message Patch

Here is a simple project to help you work on your lettering. Letter stamping is easy, simple, and fun . . . However, it definitely takes practice to line up your letters right and make your words look spaced out correctly. A fun little project like a patch to sew onto your backpack or luggage is perfect for learning your letter spacing.

Here is what you will need for this project

– Letter kit
– Piece of letter suitable to fit your favorite quote or saying
– Leather hole punch
– A Hard work surface
– A mallet
– water
– Sponge

We will not work on dying this piece. I like stamps that have a natural leather look that age on their own. Aged natural leather tells a story. So wherever you put your patch, the story is told.

Sew your patch to a bag and watch it age gracefully with every adventure!

Natural Product Review: Kiss My Face Liquid Rock Deoderant

I have recently started to switch all of my bathroom and beautifying products to natural and organic ones. The end result is that I am having less issues to deal with meaning I can buy less products which means more money for coffee dates or those Clarks desert boots I’ve been eyeing.

So o am going to start some product reviews and let you guys in on the pros and cons that I find.

Today’s product review is over Kiss My Face roll on liquid crystal deodorant. I’ve stopped using antiperspirants due to their ties with altimers disease. I like this roll on because they are easy to apply and the perfumed one has a pleasant scent to it that hints at fresh flowers.

Pros
– Smells pretty but not overpowering.
– Works well to hide odor once your body gets used to it.
– Dries semi quickly
– I have not stained any clothes with it
-small enough to take on a plane.

Cons
– Takes a while for your body to get used to it. You will need back up on a hot day.
– Doesn’t stop sweat because it is not an antiperspirant.

Verdict: 4/5
