I've been continuously on the search for a high quality leather pen sleeve that is reasonably priced. The ones that are sufficiently cheap that I can include them with my pens are lousy quality. Thin thread. Thin leather. Ugly colors. Sloppy construction. And I can never get my logo burned into them because the leather is so thin. The ones that are nice quality seem to be $20, $30 or more. After working a bit with leather in my woodworking (I posted a picture of a leather-lined valet box here awhile back), I discovered some YouTube videos that led me to think, "I can do that" with respect to my pen sleeve. Well, there's a reason those guys charge what they do. Here's my attempt. Ain't perfect; wouldn't give it away, much less sell it; but it's not a bad first attempt. Probably $1.50 in leather and thread in it, and that's super-high quality, Italian veg-tanned leather from the Conceria tannery. So if I can clean up my stitching lines and improve my edgework, I think I'll have a pretty nice leather pen sleeve that I can offer stock on my higher-cost pens or as a paid upgrade (maybe $5-10) on my lower quality pens. And--bonus--I can get a real nice embossing of my logo on there with the hot stamping machine.
