Step 1: Supplies
For this project you will need
Something to punch holes
Leather cord or lace
Knowledge of how to sew
Step 2: Measure the Leather and Punch Holes
First measure your leather so it fits your compass. You should be able to fold the leather and have room on each side of the compass including a bit on the top.
Next punch the holes by hammering the tool you're using for this step into the leather through booth sides when it's folded.
Step 3: Sewing
Now sew the thread through all the holes we made in step 2. I double stitched mine meaning once I stitched it it did it again the other way.
Step 4: Making a Strap (optional)
Make two holes on the top flap with your tool you used to punch the holes. Then thread leather lace or cord the through it and tie it like a necklace.
Step 5: Finished
