As i make leather goods for a hobby, I wanted to see if this could also be made from leather. I have been trying to think of a way to use Sugru and leather to make an iPad stand for a while….when the Sugru Magnet kit came out, the idea just clicked (sorry about the pun!).
Step 1: Marking the leather
So using the dimension of the iPad as a starting point, i played around with a few designs, and then made a paper mockup to check it looked right.
Then a card template was made and used to mark up the leather for cutting.
A sharp scratch awl is used to score the cut lines.
Two matching pieces of leather were cut and holes were cut into one side of leather to allow the magnets to sit into the leather when they were glued together.
