I get a lot of questions on my leather pouch tutorials I’ve done here and here. Mainly it involves sewing leather and how easy or difficult it is to accomplish. I will admit that if you don’t have at least a somewhat decent machine, sewing leather can be a challenge and very intimidating. So I thought I’d give my hand at a no-sew version for those of you interested in making a pouch, but too overwhelmed at the thought of breaking out a sewing machine for the project.
To start, you’ll need to gather your supplies:
- A piece of leather (I made mine somewhat small since it was my first time using this technique and it measured 9″x15″)
- Leather/Fabric punch (I purchased mine on Amazon for $15), embroidery needle, scissors, ruler & marker
- Magnetic snap closures
- Embroidery floss
- Some type of button or decorative stud to cover up the magnetic closure (I epoxied some studs over mine)
Cut out your piece of leather to your desired dimensions, leaving a pointed flap shape to fold over and close.
