My very first attempt at leather crafting. It's an artists bracer, that is it holds art tools at the ready.
I'm working on a persona who is an artist in the steampunk world. After all, every airship pilot needs a painting of their vessel!
My cuts are not the smoothest, I can shape those up I think. Overall, I'm happy with it. I'm looking forward to more of this.

Here we have my favorite pen attached, also an eraser and the small pocket by my wrist contains a pencil sharpener.

On the other side I have a long pocket that can hold about 6 pencils.

My method for securing it to my arm.

Just another angle for fun.

Now I need to work on a portfolio case and easel that I can carry. I'd also like to work on a stovetop hat gallery.

Ooh! Like this a lot.  You might cover pens and pencils in marbled paper to look more old fashioned.  Or metallic bronze or brass look paper to be even more steampunk.

Something like this? https://www.forthemakers.com/tutorials/carrel-marbled-pencils

I had thought about using rub 'n buff on the pen at least, but I was afraid it would rub off onto my hand when I use it.

Yes that is what I had in mind. I've never used rub 'n buff but I think you are right.  You can also use leather look paper. I remember a snakeskin pattern used to great effect.
