Introduction: Leather Compass Pouch

This instructable shows you how to make a small leather pouch for the compass you have. It is small, lightweight, sturdy, and affordable.

This is my first instructable so feedback is appreciated.

Step 1: Supplies

For this project you will need

A hammer
Leather
Tape measure
Compass
Something to punch holes
Scissors
Leather cord or lace
Sewing supplies
Knowledge of how to sew

Step 2: Measure the Leather and Punch Holes

First measure your leather so it fits your compass. You should be able to fold the leather and have room on each side of the compass including a bit on the top.
Next punch the holes by hammering the tool you're using for this step into the leather through booth sides when it's folded.

Step 3: Sewing

Now sew the thread through all the holes we made in step 2. I double stitched mine meaning once I stitched it it did it again the other way.

Step 4: Making a Strap (optional)

Make two holes on the top flap with your tool you used to punch the holes. Then thread leather lace or cord the through it and tie it like a necklace.

Step 5: Finished

Enjoy!!

well done, sir. If I may... Try lacing instead of sewing. If you use the right length lace you can stitch the whole pouch using the 'strap'

I didn't include this in the instructable but my inspiration for this was a old compass case in a tackle box and I wanted to make something like it.
