Who we are & What we do.
Describing this website is easy… in a word… Unique!
For the past Twenty years Bighousedaddy.com has created unique leather
patterns specifically for the leather craftsman.
Bighousedaddy’s mission is to bring unique leather patterns, and instructional videos to the leather community.
Leather patterns like a construction tool pouch set have never appeared in any leather craft magazine, or in any leather craft book. Creating the construction tool pouch set is an original idea of K. E. Hockenberry.
Unique designs are another aspect of Bighousedaddy.com. For example, the Beaver Tail Lighter Cases is an exclusive style created by K. E. Hockenberry.
In addition, Bighousedaddy offers free braiding instructions that will make your projects unique.
Many more patterns and helpful information can be found below and throughout the website.
Best regards, and
Keep Your Stitches Tight
