Introduction: Pick Holder

Picture of Pick Holder


So I got bored (It's that beautiful time of exams again..) and wanted to play my guitar but I couldn't find my pick which led me to an idea of making the pick holder!

Materials and tools:

- paper
- pencil
- plectrum
- leather
- scissors
- clasp or keyring
- needle and thread
- paint (optional)


- First, make a template of your pick holder

- when you're happy with your shape, draw it on leather and cut it

- stitch the two part together (I don't have photos of these steps, but I'm sure you'll figure it out ;) )

- you can paint the leather - optional step (I painted the inner side with black color)

- make a hole in the lower part and add clasp or keyring so you will never loose it again and have your picks always with you

Ok, that's pretty much all :D
Hope you like it!

Nice design! I'm thinking of combining this with the bracelet pick holder idea ( but using a plaited leather bracelet.

Then I can have it dangling from a left hand bracelet and keep my spare plectrum handy when I'm playing or go for a cup of tea and not lose my plectrum by leaving it lying around.

Great idea! I made one for me today, but unfortunately I made too small holder. I have to try to do it one more time! ;)
Anyway, love the idea! Cheers. :)

This is so amazing! You should sell this idea to fender or first act or something

Well thanks! That's a good idea, but I don't know, where and how to start :/

great idea!

thanks :)

it's nice, the design looks a bit open, does the plectrum stay in there securely?

Eldalote (author)nic nak2014-01-16

Yep! It's really tight! You can change your design a little bit if you are not sure about it. But I carry it on my trousers for days and I still have the pick ;)

Eldalote (author)Eldalote2014-01-16

PS If you would make more "closed" design, the pick would be hard to get off it

I'm passing this idea around my son's friends!

Thanks a lot! :)
