How to Make a Bankbook Case




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 bankbook 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 bankbook.

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: Apply the Oil

Apply the oil  to the back side of the leather.  Make sure you apply a heavy coat  of oil.

Step 5: Polish the Leather Edge

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

Step 6: Draw the Seam Line for the Inside Pockets

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 7: Glue the Belt

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

Step 8: Sew It

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

Step 9: Glue the Inside Pockets

Glue the two inside pockets onto the inside of the leather.

Step 10: Draw the Seam Line for the Bankbook and Pierce It With a Hammer

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

Step 11: Sew It

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

Step 12: The Inside Pockets Are Attached

There is an  inside pocket on the right and left  side.

Step 13: You Are Finished!

You have completed your project.

    it looks lovely and soft, very nicely made. Did you attach the loop at the same time as the belt? Did you use glue and/or stitch it?
