Step 1: Check Out the Video =)
Here I'm showing how easy to make this awesome key cover.
Step 2: Cutting the Leather.
For this project I decided to use a vegetable oil tanned leather. It's 2mm thick and very firm. But it's not necessary to use a leather that thick.

Then cut a rectangular piece by using the template. My key is 25mm wide, so if you have a different size of key, you need to create your own template.
Step 3: Punching Holes
Use an awl to punch holes for sewing. Then use a hole punch to make two holes for the key ring.
Step 4: Sewing
I was using special leather stitching needles to sew the leather. But it's not necessary. You can use regular needle to do that.
For this key I was using a saddle stitch method.
Step 5: Cut Your Corners
After sewing everything together you can cut the corners of the key cover.
