This is a bi-fold card wallet. I used an Italian vegetable leather and worked for an hour

If you're tired of heavy wallets, give it a try : )

Leather Thickness: 1.0t

Step 1: Sketching and Making a Pattern

Design the wallet : Imagine final shape of wallet and sketch it.

Step 2: Cutting the Leather

Step 3: Punching

Make a hole for the stitching

Step 5: Burnishing the Edge

Apply gum (Tokonole) and burnish with slicker

Step 6: Stitching Pocket

Use cross-stitching on the two pocket parts

Step 7: Assembling

Apply glue and assemble every part

Step 8: Chiseling and Stitching

Use saddle stitch on the edge of the wallet

Step 9: Burnishing Edges

Again, apply gum and burnishing it

Step 10: Done!

    I'm sorry, but I have no idea what YouTube Chat is or where to find it. I've looked, but no luck finding it.
    Is there a link you can give me? Thanks.
