Itty Bitty Teeny Tiny Tack

Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away I made micro mini tack.  I quit in April of 2009 (blogs are so handy for recording these things!), but I recently had a request for a simple project: a halter and lead rope for Maggie Bennett's jumping mule.  It turned out pretty good!


It WAS really fiddly to work with.  The leather was thin and narrow, and it wasn't fun trying to get the hardware made.  I lost count of how many halter rings slipped off of my pliers, never to be found again.

I still have my plastic micro bodies and a few western saddles floating around from the micro mini days.  I've never gotten around to selling them, but I probably should; I'll never use them.

Just for fun, here are a few older pieces that I did in micro mini scale.
