“I have an old Tiffany’s leather belt that belonged to my husband’s late father. His father was his best friend and he misses him terribly. He’ll never actually wear the belt so I thought about repurposing it. I’d love to make more than one thing and gift it to my husband and his siblings at […]

“ I found your website when I was looking up memorial things I could do with an old leather jacket. You see, my father was very proud to be a Marine. He did two tours during the Vietnam War and although he made it home safe, unlike a lot of his brothers and friends, it did […]
“My aunt was a DJ at KSJO in the 80s. I’d like to make her old leather jacket into an Ashbury for my sister for Christmas.” -Kevin B. “I was tearing up when my brother gave me the “Sleeping Bag Records” purse. I was named after my Aunt, who died when I was seven, and […]
