Things you will need i flood some leather, hard if you want a stiff sheath loose if you want a floppy one.
Next you will need a leather beadle and leather working string, works better when string is waxed.
Then you need something the cut the leather with. Either a razor or really sharp scissors.
Lighter to burn away excess string.
Optional items
An edge trimmer for the finished product.

Take your square of leather and wrap it are pins your blade and cut off leather about 1/4 in from the knife blade maybe more no less. Then take your knife out and fold the leather so that the sides are evenly folded. Clamp with any type of clan that will hold leather firm

Step 3: Start Sewing

Once your sheath is clamped get your needle and pull out a room of string 3x as long as the sheath would be. Then if the leather is soft pike a hole in it with the needle and push it out the other side about 1/8 from the outside edge of the leather and take the string end and pass it through the string that is next to the needle. Then pull the needle out of the leather and continue.

Step 4: Types Of Stitches

One type is the x stitch. You take the needle and whenever you pull it out go to the other side and poke it in and so the whole thing with the string and the loops. The second looks like this ----- when you take is out you do not switch the side that the needle goes in. I prefer the x stitch over the -- stitch personally the blade doesn't cut through it as easy.
