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!
<p>Nice design! I'm thinking of combining this with the bracelet pick holder idea (https://www.instructables.com/id/Pick-holder-bracelet/) but using a plaited leather bracelet. </p><p>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.</p>
<p>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! ;)<br>Anyway, love the idea! Cheers. :)</p>
<p>Looks great! I'm glad you like it ;)</p>
awesome <br>I also put some cord
it was great and easy
This is so amazing! You should sell this idea to fender or first act or something
<p>Well thanks! That's a good idea, but I don't know, where and how to start :/</p>
thats cool :)
<p>thank you! :)</p>
great idea!
<p>thanks :)</p>
it's nice, the design looks a bit open, does the plectrum stay in there securely?
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 ;)
<p>PS If you would make more &quot;closed&quot; design, the pick would be hard to get off it </p>
<p>I'm passing this idea around my son's friends!</p>
Thanks a lot! :)
