Good evening ladies and gents. In this fine Instructable I will be showing you how to create your own leather pouches! This is also a great introductory in basic leather working.
If you have any questions regarding the tutorial, making of your own cosplay/costume or just want to say hi please send me a message on my facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ToweringProps). Its much easier and faster to get back to you there. :)
Over the several steps listed here ill demonstrate a handful of good techniques while working with leather for either new or experienced cosplayers and costume enthusiasts. Ill be demonstrating cutting, shaping, gluing, applying dye and conditioner and a few other tricks. I learn better ways and new techniques every time I do a costume so check back often for improved or new tricks and more examples.
Here's what you'll need:
4-5 oz leather single shoulder (4 - 5 sq. feet)
Leather contact cement
Waterstain leather dye (I used dark brown)
Leather finish (I used Gloss)
High density sponge
Sharp scissors or angled box cutter
Pencil and Pen
Your choice of button: Magnetic bag snaps, Sam Brown button etc
Black acrylic paint
Metal spring clip
so lets get started!
