Introduction: Simple Leather Case for Field Notes

Field Notes and Moleskine Cahier Journal are great EDC notebooks. However neither brand is as durable as I would like so I designed this leather case to give a second skin to the notebook.
What you will need:

  • Some thin leather ( about 1.5mm thick)
  • 2 leather sewing needles
  • Waxed thread
  • Laser Cutter

Step 1: Laser Cut the Parts

Use the attached SVG to laser cut the pieces of leather out.

It may be necessary thin out the leather after cutting it to get it down to 1.5mm thickness.

You can also dye and seal the leather at this point.
