Laid it out on the leather and cut. cut 1cm extra width to be sure the book would fit.
Step 2: Prepare Sewing, Add Some Details and Bend
Prepared for sewing with a groover, awl and a rotary punch.
Carved in some decorations.
Wet the leather and banged the bends with a wooden hammer.
Cut The edges a little bit and burnished them with some bees wax and a soft attachement for my Dremel.
Step 3: Sewing and Closing
Cut holes and used leather straps and reindeer horn to close the case. glued the edges on the inside.
My first time doing details. I need more practice!
Didn't use any finish. Probably should have!
