How to Make a Bankbook Case





Introduction: How to Make a Bankbook Case

Since the original vinyl case is cheaply made, I made a bankbook case out of leather.
Leather material gives it a more luxurious feel.

Step 1: Prepare the Template

Prepare the template that is larger than the actual size of the bankbook.

Step 2: Cut Out the Leather

Cut out the leather with a leather cutter.
Be careful not to cut your fingers!

Step 3: Needed to Complete Project

These are all the materials you will need to complete the project.

Step 4: Apply the Oil

Apply the oil  to the back side of the leather.  Make sure you apply a heavy coat  of oil.

Step 5: Polish the Leather Edge

Apply oil to the leather edge and polish it with the stick of the wood.

Step 6: Draw the Seam Line for the Inside Pockets

Draw a line to show the sewing line.
At this time, draw a line about 0.1 inch away the sewing line from the edge.

Step 7: Glue the Belt

Glue the belt together using elastomeric adhesive which is used to glue leather.

Step 8: Sew It

After the glue has dried, sew it with the wax cord.

Step 9: Glue the Inside Pockets

Glue the two inside pockets onto the inside of the leather.

Step 10: Draw the Seam Line for the Bankbook and Pierce It With a Hammer

At this time, draw a line on the bankbook to make the sewing line.
Pierce it with a hammer on the sewing  line.

Step 11: Sew It

After the glue has dried, sew it with the wax cord.

Step 12: The Inside Pockets Are Attached

There is an  inside pocket on the right and left  side.

Step 13: You Are Finished!

You have completed your project.
