#EdenDIY - Club Meeting: DIY Flogger and Basic Leather Care. Tuesday 18th, 3pm EST.

ToyTimeTim ToyTimeTim


Howdy folks and welcome to this month’s meeting.

This month we will be looing at a DIY flogger that Katelyn submitted to me using recycled bike tubes and some basic leather care.

Katelyn is a college gal living on a limited budget. She began to notice how much of her money went to BDSM items and decided to do something about it. With the help of cheap supplies from hardware stores and the local bike shop, she has figured out how to make most anything from scratch.

Pretty much what DIY is all about, eh?

As far as the leather care goes I will be talking about it from my background working at a shoe repair shop, one of my first tasks there was polishing shoes and conditioning leather coats for customers. Believe me when I say I have seen more stains on leather than you would believe. Things like general conditioning, cleaning and making them soft and supple will be covered.

I sure hope you can come and join in this month, along with some fun DIY we will also have five trivia questions that could earn you 1000 points.

Bootblacking is the art of caring for leather. It's become a part of the Leather subculture, to some extent, and also the BDSM community as a whole. While I am not Leather, I ID as a bootblack, as I love leather items, and taking care of them properly for my partners/friends.

Nice, I'll remember that one.

Interesting how times and terms change, back in my big leather days everyone brought there stuff to the Cobbler to have them fixed, conditioned or to buy the supplies. Nowadays folks like to DIY. That is the big reason the shop I worked at went out of business.

I do that same thing for X-mas and birthdays. Saving money is nice but a hand made item just can't be beat for gifts.
