A case for my essential leatherworking tools

A lot of things have happened since my last blog post. I earned my Bachelor’s degree, went to Rome for a week and was admitted to the Master’s programme I applied for, to name a few. This is the reason I have not posted anything for a while. I have made some stuff that I would like to show you though. Sadly, I don’t have time to show you all of it. I’ll be leaving for a short trip to Slovakia tomorrow. I might make a blog post from there. On my way there, I’ll be stopping by Dictum in Metten to pick up some stuff. Can’t wait to see if the store is as good as I’ve heard. For now, I’ll just make some shorter posts.

I’ve made some things to store the tools I’ll take with me on my trip. Below you see how I made a little leather case for most of my essential small leatherworking tools.

Making a zipper case


A coin pouch that I saw on Pinterest gave me the idea to cut a hole in the middle of a piece of leather to put the zipper in. I soaked the case after sewing it and pressed it flat, to make it hold it’s shape better. I put some carnauba wax and leather cream on it to protect it and give it a nice and deep color. I also made this little needle case to go with it out of the same leather and industrial felt.
