This is a fun and simple project I did for my 3 and 6-cup Chemex coffee brewers to replace the wooden neck handles.
Step 1: Cut Out Pieces and Punch Holes
-Cut out neck and collar pieces from a sturdy leather. I made a paper mock-up first to get the shape and size right.
-Punch holes around the perimeter of both pieces. Punch holes at both ends of the neck piece for a button.
-Dye leather (optional)
Step 2: Assembly
-Using a strong needle and waxed thread, sew the collar to the neck and continue stitching around the perimeter through all punched holes.
-Add a button or snap as a closure.
-Wet the assembled leather and attach it to the glass carafe. Mold it to the shape of the neck and let dry.
-Enjoy a freshly brewed cup of coffee!
