About: Hello!! Welcome to "Balisage-Channel"!! Nice to meet you!! I'm Yasushi Ishikawa and really enjoy creating content on YouTube! This channel will show you how to make a furniture, paint a wall, build a tiny hu...
Since the original vinyl case is cheaply made, I made a card key case out of leather.
Leather material gives it a more luxurious feel.

Step 1: Prepare the Template

Prepare the template that is larger than the actual size of the card key case.

Step 2: Cut Out the Leather

Cut out the leather with a leather cutter.
Be careful not to cut your fingers!

Step 3: Needed to Complete Project

These are all the materials you will need to complete the project.

Step 4: Draw the Seam Line for the Materials

Draw a line to show the sewing line.
At this time, draw a line about 0.1 inch away the sewing line from the edge.

Step 5: Glue the Leather

Glue the leather together using elastomeric adhesive which is used to glue leather.

Step 6: Draw the Seam Line for the Card Key Case and Pierce It With a Hammer

At this time, draw a line on the card key case to make the sewing line.
Pierce it with a hammer on the sewing  line.

Step 7: Sew It

After the glue has dried, sew it with the wax cord.

Step 8: Attach a Ring

Attach a ring to attach a key ring.

Step 9: Polish the Leather Edge

Apply oil to the leather edge and polish it with the stick of the wood.

Step 10: You Are Finished!

You have completed your project.
