Required Material Before starting the making process, you should first make sure that you have all the necessary material. It requires a few things that are easily available in your home. First, check out the following items. A soft good quality leather piece Sharp scissors Bradawl Needles Lining fabric String or thread for leather stitching Ruler Pen for marking Once you have the above material, you are all set. Now, you need to follow some steps. Without wasting time, let’s move to the main steps. Step 1: Cutting One of the most important steps, the very first you will cut off the given piece. You must be worrying about the dimensions of the piece. First, you decide what kind of bag you want. You want it for carrying mobile, for carrying your accessories, or for keys. Once you have decided, now cut off the leather according to your size demand. As an example, suppose you are making a pouch for your cell phone. Then you need to cut off the leather in a rectangle shape, having a dimension of 16.5 inches. You can use the ruler for measuring the length and height of the rectangle. Step 2: Inside Lining You can make the inside of your pouch smooth and soft for your things. For this, you need to use a lining fabric piece. Lining fabric is a soft piece of cloth mainly used in the inside-lining of bags or pouches. You can get this from a cloth shop easily. Cut off the lining piece a little short than the leather piece. Before cutting, mark the piece using the pen or marker, marking would help you to cut it off nicely. Step 3: Folding and Piercing Once you are done with cutting and lining, now you need to move to the next step which is folding. Enfold the rectangle in such a way that its top flap is 3 inches in height and cut off the rough edges with scissors. Now, after enfolding you need to secure the edges. For this, pick the bradawl. Bradawl is mainly used to make holes in the leather. The holes will help you in stitching or securing the edges with the string. For making holes, place the enfold leather on a wooden board and start piercing holes by using a bradawl and a hammer. Step 4: Stitching For leather stitching, primarily Glover’s needle is used. Stitching becomes easy because of the holes you made. Insert the thread into the needle and start sewing from the first hole. And keep stitching until you reach the last hole. Once you reached the last hole, make a knot in the end for securing and cut the extra thread. The leather piece now looks like a pouch. Step 5: Button hook Make a button hook, for the opening and closing of the top flap. First, you need to make a thread loop. For this twist the thread in such a way that it can form a hook. Now, attach the thread hook to the top flap with the help of strong glue. After attaching the thread hook, stitch the button on the pouch. In this way, you can open and secure the top flap easily.
