This kit lets you make a practical, versatile holder for carrying anything from glasses to art supplies. The completed case measures about 7 1/2” × 3 1/4” × 2” thick. The kit includes pre-cut leather pieces with punched stitch holes, as well as two needles, waxed thread, a 17” leather cord used to bind the case closed, and detailed instructions.
Supplied by renowned Italian tanneries, the vegetable-tanned and dyed leather is durable yet supple. Easy to work with, it wears well and ages to a rich, deep patina through long use. Aside from a small amount of glue to finish the thread end, nothing else is required.
Difficulty rating: 3/5. Approximate completion time for a beginner: 1 hour.
