I was in a flea market the other day and I bought some leather scraps. Here’s a fast and easy tutorial to make a little wallet.
NOTE: Since you are sewing leather it’s important to use the appropriate kind of needle. I use this SINGER model which is very good for sewing thick material.
- Leather straps
- A 20 cm zipper
- Key ring
- Sewing machine
Cut 1 piece of leather (6×4 cm)
Cut 2 pieces of leather (8×11 cm)
Sew one of the big pieces to one of the sides of the zipper
Sew the zipper to the other leather piece
Fold in half the 6×4 cm pice and sew it in the middle
When it’s ready sew it to the bottom of the wallet (where the zipper closes)
Sew the remaining parts of the wallet and add the little piece with the key ring and done! 🙂
