Step 1: The Materials
- Leather (harvester from old couches)
- SD Card holder
- Snap fastener
Step 2: The Tools
- Scissors or sharp knife
- Snap fastener tool and hammer
Step 3: Start Cutting
I measured it and here are the values that will do for a Canon Digital Ixus 60 (refer to picture notes).
Step 4: Other Cuts
Keep the part you cut off, as it will be needed for the belt strap!
Make sure to cut those two slits in the picture.
Step 5: First Holes
Don't worry about messing up! If you punch an extra hole, you may as well use it when you have to sew it.
Step 6: Understanding the Shape
Step 7: Last Holes
Step 8: Sewing!
Once you get to the central part, follow the pictures and then tighten the lace.
The two "flap" will be outside, while the central part will be forced inside the pouch with no additional cuts.
Continue sewing with an in-and-out pattern until you get to the top of the sides.
Do not worry about the connections between the layers, just use all the holes you have, preferably without overlapping laces.
Use your fantasy, the leather won't mind if it gets a diagonally sewn part or an extra hole!
Step 9: The Belt Strap
Punch holes in it, then put it on the pouch and mark where to make the holes. Use a pin or a nail to help you get deep inside too make the holes.
Sew them together and tie knots at the ends.
Now it is done! You can already use it as it is. If you want it to have a closing part and and SD card holder, read on!
Step 10: The SD Card Holder
Make 4 holes in the plastic holder corners.
Put it onto the pouch and mark the holes. Make them.
Sew them together and keep the laces inside the case.
Step 11: The Snap Fastener
First, cut off the two parts as shown in the pictures.
hold the two parts together and punch a hole through both of the layers.
On the front layer, put the first parts of the snap fastener, facing forward (4-5-6-7th pics).
Do the same on the other side with the other snap fastener parts, be careful about which part goes up and which down!
Step 12: Done!
