Three of five suede panels I did for a bar in Texas. Fun project! #duaneballard #letyourworkdothetalking #madeinusa #leather #leathercraft #handmade #sewing #architecture #interiordesign
This long wallet was bought from me today at @chopperfest. Crazy busy today! Thanks for all the support everyone. It's truly appreciated. It was fun to talk to people about future projects, other leather workers and everyone that stopped to say hello. #duaneballard #letyourworkdothetalking #madeinusa #leather #leathercraft #handmade #sewing #wallet #clutch #fashion
Tomorrow is the big day! @lisamballard and I have been doing this show since we first moved out here eleven years ago. Come check out all the bikes, vendors and art show.  Stop by the booth to say hey, grab something for Christmas, or go over a project. I also will have my newest CB750, Xanadu, I built for the @bornfreeshow in the show. We will see you in the morning! I am set up right across from the show field between @chopcult and @biltwell. #dmcf15 #chopperfest

Another long wallet cover ready to dye. Always a bit nervous at this point. One mistake with the dye and its trash. #duaneballard #letyourworkdothetalking #madeinusa #leather #leathercraft #handmade #sewing #wallet #clutch #fashion
This one was picked up by a VERY happy customer yesterday. Fun project! #duaneballard #tooledleather #madeinusa #leather #leathercraft #handmade #sewing #wallet #clutch #fashion
Another one ready to head out to its new owner. All hand tooled, dyed and laced. Thanks for looking! #duaneballard #letyourworkdothetalking #madeinusa #leather #leathercraft #handmade #sewing #wallet #clutch #fashion
I finished up a group of belt key keepers this morning. They are the only thing I usually keep on hand ready to go. Some of these are made with nos U.S. Army clips from the early fifties. I'll have them with me at @chopperfest this weekend. I'm always set up across from the show field between @biltwell and @chopcult.

Wallet cover I did that I believe will be getting some double takes. My take on the customers request. He said, "Not at all what I was thinking but so much better." couldn't ask for a better reaction. #duaneballard #letyourworkdothetalking #madeinusa #leather #leathercraft #handmade #sewing #wallet #clutch #fashion
The CB750 chopper I built, Funkenstein, is in a cartoon in development for Comedy Central. Crazy! #cb750 #chopper #motorcycle #cartoon
The greatest car and bike show on earth is this weekend. Hope everyone has a great time! @mooneyesusa @mooneyesjp @ssss_521_ssss

Custom long wallet I finished last night. The customer wanted eighteen card slots in this one. #duaneballard #letyourworkdothetalking #madeinusa #leather #leathercraft #handmade #sewing #wallet #clutch #fashion
Interior for a long wallet that has eighteen card slots. Just about anything can be done since I make all my interiors myself one at a time. #duaneballard #letyourworkdothetalking #madeinusa #leather #leathercraft #handmade #sewing #wallet #clutch
One issue with the new bike out of the way. Now to get rid of these stock carbs I've invested endless hours and $ trying to get right with this engine. #duaneballard #cb750

A long wallet I just finished up with a badge holder. All hand tooled, dyed and sewn. #duaneballard #letyourworkdothetalking #madeinusa #leather #leathercraft #handmade #sewing #wallet #clutch #fashion
One of the projects that I'm working on now that can be seen. A long wallet with an interior I made to better suit the owner's needs. #duaneballard #letyourworkdothetalking #madeinusa #leather #leathercraft #handmade #sewing #wallet #clutch #fashion
