My friend Laura (of @laurabsewin) sent me a leather pouch kit. Omg yes. Ever since my class with Tilt Leather, I’m up for any leather hand sewing project. It was fun to refresh on a stitch I learned in class.
The pouch kit came with a piece of precut leather complete with punched holes and a snap, thread, and needles. It arrived flat, so when I clasped it together I was pleasantly surprised to discover it was a bear pouch! So. Cute.
I used a saddle stitch for the pouch, sewing with two needles from the top of the pouch to the bottom.
Once I reached the bottom, I did a few backstitches, then knotted the thread in the back of the pouch. I sewed the thread back through to the front and to the back one hole to hide the lose ends, then trimmed.
Now, what to keep in this cute lil pouch? What fun crafty projects have you been working on lately? Share below!
