DIY leather pouch

We decided to make our own leather pouch since it’s so expensive to buy from outside don’t you agree? We upcycled the leather from a sofa.

1
Laying out the tools needed.
– Pouch Template
– Leather
– Fabric Scissors or Rotary Cutter
– Ruler
– Pencil
– Pen Knife
– Sewing machine and thread
– Ball head screwback studs
– Permanent paint markers (optional)

Now let’s start measuring and drawing out the shape and size needed.

Putting the rotary cutter to good use.

You can either choose to go classic or with patterns. We chose to dot ours with a silver marker.

Next, fold the leather, dots will be inside but don’t worry we will be flipping it outwards later. Sew them together leaving 1cm from the edge.
Use a fabric scissors to trim close to the stitch and also the corners.
Turn the pouch right side out. Fold down the flip and mark a spot and use scissors to make a slit.
Use the leather hole punch to make a hole and insert the stud.

And ta-dah we are done!
