Leather camera belt pouch from a single rectangle

Hello and welcome to my second instructable, which is, as you could tell, another leather creation! This one is a very simple camera holder for your belt. I have been carrying my camera (a Canon Digital Ixus 60) around since I had it, using a belt pouch I bought with the camera. Where is the problem? The problem is I bought it. I did not make it. To fully appreciate something, you have to create it! So, let's get started, and let's create it for your camera!

Step 1: The materials

The materials required for this project are:
- Leather (harvester from old couches)
- Shoelace

Optional:
- SD Card holder
- Snap fastener

Step 4: Other cuts

Cut again following this pattern.

IMPORTANT:
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

Start punching holes along the sides as shown in the first picture, the proceed to the second one.

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

I used screws to hold it in place and take a picture. This is how it will be folded and sewn.

Step 7: Last holes
