My stash of these cone studs seems to be bottomless. I keep dreaming up project after project and I always seem to have leftovers once I'm done. I picked up this leather portfolio at Goodwill for $2 but wasn't quite sold on it. I loved the size and the texture but it needed a little something else. Naturally, I went to my usual go-to: studs.
Studding leather seemed like a daunting and painful ordeal but it went quite smoothly. I would pierce the studs row by row from one end to about halfway, turn the bag inside out, then bend all the clamps down. Less annoying repetitive motions that are usually associated with studding. Quick and easy and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Totally transformed the bag me thinks!!
