Some measurements inches some centermeters. I am from the south could not understand what he was saying part of the time. The pattern wasn’t explained very good confusing. I have watched many of the videos and liked them. I just could not get a handle on this.

Absolutely love this pattern and the build along YouTube instruction on how to make it with Ian is fantastic. Ian has the most relaxed way of teaching and is patient, explaining every step along the way with a methodical, practical and sensible approach. I am new to leatherwork and have learned so much from Ian. Thank you. Jean
