How To Make A Leather Sleeve | Tutorial

WARNING: This post is image heavy.

Recently, a friend of mine got me to make a custom leather casing/ sleeve for him. It wasn’t something conventional, that’s why I decided to take on the job. Good thing was, he wanted it au naturel. No colouring, no dyeing, no nothing. I did however, stamp his name on it. However, to protect his identity, I have decided to blur it out. Hence, some of the images may look distorted.

Started sketching using my silver pen.weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (1)

Strap with a magnet clasp. It’s quite fitting, so I would say that the magnet clasp is rather redundant. But looks good though.weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (6)weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (7)weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (8)

And since we were gonna go au naturel, I thought that a cross stictch would be fitting for this piece.weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (15)weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (16)weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (17)weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (18)weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (19)weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (20)weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (21)weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (22)weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (23)weekend ranger leather made in singapore bespoke customized name card holders how to make vape sleeve casing (24)
