Step 2: Tracing and Cutting

1- I trace the tamplate on the leather.

2- I cut the leather using the utility knife.

3- I draw a line in the centre of the width of the piece of leather

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.
