Looking for suggestions for thread colors. I have waxed linen in off white but was thinking some other non-standard colors might be fun...

For the PVD case:

A new very soft, but thick, oil tan with a nice patina:

Looking for some stitching suggestions. Full stitch or minimalist or any other suggestions? All are welcome. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/10/06/zu2yby9u.jpg

Great looking strap. It is perfect with your Pam. Your strap gives the watch a nice vintage look. Congrats!

I don't know how active GatorMike is these days..he hasn't posted since mid-March.

The Tandy Leather company has been supplying leather hobbyists for decades. They probably stock just about everything you'll need...leathers, stitching, needles and tools, hardware, etc. You should check out their website.
Another place to possibly try is an arts and crafts store, but try Tandy first.

Great looking straps. I've been tempted at trying my hand at making some.
