It has been a while since my last leatherworking project, decided to make something easy to get back into it.Ended up with a decent looking wallet that I'm already using and that I like a lot!If you want to make one, here you can download a free template with the precise measure I made mine:http://blackbeardproject.com/free-downloads/Made to print on a regular A4 size paper.The leather I used is 2mm thick, making this with a thicker leather might be pretty hard.I am no leatherworker so take this just as a quick project, I'm sure there are plenty better design.Index of operation and materials:All cutting done with a box cutter and steel rulerI used the pattern on my cutting mat for measuring cuts0:39 10mm hole punch1:03 5mm hole punch1:27 beveling tool1:58 thinning down the inner side of the card holder2:25 Sanding edges to smooth everything out2:55 Folding the two piece of leather together to mark button location3:24 Setting in the clip button3:46 Fake chamois leather from a pair of boots4:13 Dyeing the cuts with brown leather dye4:52 Leather finish to seal edges5:10 Burnishing with a pen (anything that fits will work)5:46 Glueing cards pockets with contact adhesive7:04 Glueing backing again with contact adhesive (same boots fake leather)7:49 Glueing two parts of the wallet, care where you add glue8:23 Sanding edges to make everything nice and square, but also slightly rounding edges.9:06 Beveling sanded edges to break corners (also sanded off camera)9:30 Cutting groove for the stitches9:58 Punching stitches holes with forks10:28 Leather finish on edges and burnishing11:12 Sewing with waxed thread12:17 Weathering outside by removing some color from the leather with alcohol12:50 Branding iron I made a while back12:00 Vintage looking numbersOff camera I also applied more leather finish and cleaned well with rag.For those asking where to find tools:I bought mine some years ago when I was starting to make leather sheaths. I went for the cheapest I was able to find. Have been working great so far! Can't find exactly the one I have but I listed some in my amazon storefront that are pretty much the same and any similar ones will work aswell.
