Building on the success of our 42mm wrist watch kit we're excited to introduce TWO new watch options;
the Classic 36 White and the Thirty Six Black. These new watch faces are available now and offer a smaller, lighter and sleeker look for those wanting a smaller wrist watch kit option.
To help you decide which size you prefer we've broken down the details of the Original 42mm vs the new 36mm.
Here she is. You named her and Mabel is now ready to officially meet the world.
A creative collaboration between Sonia from Dandelyne and Bec from Hammered Leatherworks, Mabel has been created to solve a common problem "Where are my scissors?". An issue all creatives are faced with on a regular basis we are sure. Mabel is the result of our combined minds to help simplify your world by bringing your scissors and needles into the closest of reaches. Her bold colours are not just for fun but to help in finding her when she is not hanging around your neck. Meet Sonia and learn more about Dandelyne on our blog.
Mabel is the nifty sewer's companion. Her job is to give your sharp scissors a home with a cuddly 100% wool felt pin cushion to keep your needles safe! (Nothing worse than them disappearing into the carpet!) The full grain leather pieces ensure your scissor points are safe and secure from doing or getting damaged while the adjustable neck strap is comfortable, light weight and durable. Mabel looks great with any scissors and fits almost all embroidery scissors and snips. The scissors shown here are designed by Paula Sibbald in Canada and we have just a few available for purchase too for an additional $20.
This first release of Mabel is limited to 10 kits in each colourway and come with a 40mm Dandelyne mini embroidery hoop to celebrate!

Here it is and we are almost over the line for our first limited run. We just need your help! Starting with a name...
Not long after I started out helping about the place here at Hammered, I managed to talk Bec into letting me get my mits on a tan leather wrist watch kit. I’m a graphic designer by trade so I tend to like clean and minimalistic designs; something classy that I can knock around with day to day as well as dress up when called for. Prior to getting my wrist watch kit I tended to favour large watches with metal bands that while looked stylish did have a fair weight behind them and as a result only got worn on the odd occasion so I was pretty stoked with how light my wrist watch kit has been as well as how soft the leather of the watch band is.
What blew me away was the actual making of the watch. It really couldn’t have been simpler…
I had never sewn very much before and the only instructions I had was from the online instructional videos that everyone else uses so I had no real idea of how long it was actually going to take me. I initially only intended to stitch one of the bands the first night I got the kit but next thing you know it was less than an hour later and I had the whole project knocked out and completed.
My watch is getting daily use and to be honest I forget it’s there on my wrist at times. Now I’ve just got to talk Bec into letting me pilfer one of those oh so classy travel wallets…
Until next time all,

Any Dad would be super happy with any of the above but the Fogarty family favourites are the Wrist Watch, Key Hoodie and Poppys Pouch.
Happy Hunting xoxo Bec
And like that we are back. Trade Show adventures are always one of a kind with our bespoke range of Leathergoods kits. This time everything went nuts before we left which had us scrambling for furniture hire and 115kgs of checked baggage. So while the airports were urging everyone to pack light we were packing more and more in! Virgin are an awesome airline they handled our precious packages with soooo much care.
So we insta storied our way through Life Instyle this year, for those of you who missed it its a trade only event. Meaning it is where the shops come to shop! How cool is that. You will see some new things rolling out very soon as we have Mr courier already packing his van and we have only been home a week.
This year we tried something different. I am alway stitching on the road its such good relaxation. This time we got back to our roots and did some teaching. New stockists joined us for Clifford card wallet sew alongs YAY. Soon there will be new packaging rolling out making our kits just thaat much more liftable! We launched new products like Henry... more on him to come and added to our very popular wrist watch range.
Take a look at our setup tell us what you think!
Lots of love talk to you soon. Adam and Bec
