Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED
-thick hide/leather scraps;
-snap button tool;
-hard plastic/wood surface.
Step 2: PATTERN
This is the simple pattern of the wallet, with the measurements, and the holes for the snap button.
Step 3: MARK
Mark the pattern on the leather.
Step 4: CUT
Cut the leather.
Step 5: PUNCH HOLES
Punch the holes for the snap button.
Step 6: BUTTONS
Place the snap button.
Step 7: GLUE
Glue the front and the back of the wallet.
(Optional. I do it just because this way it is faster to punch the holes all the way around without the two part of leather moving away from each other).
Step 8: PUNCH HOLES
Punch holes all the way around.
Step 9: START SEWING
Start sewing: pass with the needle in between the two layers of leather, let a little bit of thread out on a side.
Step 10: SEW
Sew all the way up on a side, than on the other side, than back where you started (see photos).
Do few more stitches more, so that it is not going to be unthread.
Step 11: FINISH SEWING
Exit again in between the two layers of leather.
Cut away thread left overs.
