Every fashionista has had this problem: the belt is too big, the shoe strap is too loose. Ordinarily, the determined clotheshorse will take said item(s) to the cobbler for alteration. But why do that when there's an at-home solution?
I'm talking about a leather hold punch device. Think about it: what a great and practical gift for your accessory obsessed friends. This simple rotary tool works just like a regular hole punch, altering that belt, shoe, or purse strap in a jiffy. It's easy, it's clean, and it requires no schlepping around for quick fixes.
I found many models on this site, www.eleathersupply.com, but the one that seemed most appropriate for the tasks at hand was the $19.99 model. Just depends what you want to spend and how much punch you'd like to pack.
