Holla! Finally I started trying leatherwork. After a failed attempt at buying leather few months ago, I finally found it online at smartyhands.com. Know it from reading an old issue of MS Living Indonesia. Why is it miss from my radar…
Well, I don’t have specific tools for leather, so I just gather things that I thought would make it. Cutter, pencil, drawing pen, binder clips, ruler, pliers, sewing scissors, needles, waxed thread, candle, nail pin and a piece of leftover board from our family woodworking last moment.
First, I tried to make card holder as an experiment to know how to get everything right. And it appears that I need bigger nail pin to make a hole on leather. If you wonder what pliers has to do in this project, I used it to substitute the hammer since I couldn’t find it. Moreover, I need it to hoe the nail pin.
I learn the sewing technique from YouTube. Wohoo, I learn a lot from YouTube recently.
And this is the result. I think it’s pretty neat for the first attempt. Even though I still doubting its function. Well, I’m using leftover for this one.
The next thing that I want to made is… phone case! Well, leather case is so pricey, I would rather buy the kit than buy the product :p
This is the final result. I put my initial on it. I kind of like it eventhough I’m not use it so often :D
