Homestead Designs. This morning I hung out with an interesting guy while he cut patterns for his leather hats. He cuts his patterns by hand without a formal pattern, claiming that he keeps the design in his mind , while always improving on the pattern. He said that he used to live with the Mennonite and is now part of the 12 Tribes- folks, family, tribe. This explained a lot about his stoic disposition. I would love to trade him for a hat, but I doubt he drinks wine or beer. But who knows?
