Making a wallet depends on the material you want to use but here is a simple process for a basic leather wallet. Materials needed: - Leather - Strong (waxed) thread - Leather needle - Utility knife - Metal straight edge - Stitching chisel / Fork prong - Mallet - Leather dye (optional) - Burnishing tool (optional) Steps: 1. Buy a piece of leather: You need to get a piece of leather that's soft yet tough. An old leather jacket could be a good source. 2. Cut out the pieces: Draw and cut out two rectangles of size 9" x 3.5" from the leather. Also, cut another leather strip about half an inch wide and 8" long (8.5" x 3"). 3. Punch stitching holes: Use a stitching chisel to punch stitching holes along 3 sides of the leather pieces (both large leather rectangles and the small strip). 4. Preparing your thread: Cut 4 feet of thread and thread your needle. Do not knot the thread. 5. Start sewing: Begin stitching the card pockets by aligning the shorter rectangles to one of the bigger pieces of leather on the non-rounded side. Make sure the edges are aligned. 6. Attaching card pocket: After stitching the first card pocket, align the second one with the first. Make sure it's slightly above the previous one to create a layered effect. 7. Stitching the wallet body: Once all card pockets are attached, place the second large leather piece onto the first, aligning the edges exactly. Now stitch all around the wallet, securing the pockets inside. 8. Finishing the edges: Use the burnishing tool and some water to smooth and finish the edges of the wallet. 9. Let it dry: Allow the wallet to dry out naturally for a day or two. Remember to be careful when working with sharp objects. If you don't have the tools or the confidence to do it, consider visiting a local craftsman or purchase a ready-made one.
