Step 2: Tracing and Cutting

4- Then I measure 2cm from the side and draw a cross line.
5- I measure 1cm from the sides of the centre point.
6- I punche two holes.
7- I cut the line between the holes with the cutter.
8- I insert the strap into the hole.
Step 3: Stitching
1- In the other part I mark about 2cm from the center of the leather piece length.
2- I made stitching holes using a punche hole.
3- I stitched the strap to the leather using a white thread.
4- I cut the excess thread and burn it.
5- Then I glued the excess of the strap to the back of the leather.
6- After this I put glue on the sides of the leather then I fold it in half to stick the sides.
7- And I punche holes along the sides,then I stitch them with white thread again.
8- I cut of the excess, and burn the thread.
9- I put a card inside the wallet then I measure where I need to cut the strap.
10- Finaly I cut the strap and I glued a piece of leather to it.
