Strap Extension

What do you do when you have a new purse strap would be ideal but just needs to be 5" longer?  You send it to a leatherworker to make it 5" longer. \o/

I laminated two pieces of milled vegtan with a spot of glue and some extra tight stitching to add another 5".  I expect it'll work out to about 5.125" inches in the end as the leather stretches but the stitching will mitigate that pretty well.  And not to brag or anything, but I think my stitching looks a lot nicer than the original factory stitching. >_>
