Beginner Leather: Cardholder Wallet Kit

Welcome to the wonderful world of leatherwork! Working in leather is a timeless, fun and durable craft – and because leather goods last so long when done well, they wind up being far more sustainable than “fast fashion” items that wear out and get tossed after one season.

This kit is designed to introduce you to the various steps of leatherworking from start to finish, and provide you with the basic skills to move on to larger or more complicated projects once you're comfortable. It is not simply a build kit, sticking together pre-cut pieces: you’ll need to bring some elbow grease (and a hammer)!

  • 1 6x12” piece of 3-4 oz. vegetable tanned leather

  • 1 white gel pen

  • 1 craft knife

  • 1 6” metal straight edge ruler

  • 4 large-hole leather sewing needles

  • 30 ft of 1mm waxed braided nylon cording (color varies)

  • 1 metal edge beveler / groover

  • 1 double sided sanding block

  • 1 block white beeswax

  • 1 wooden burnishing tool

  • Printed cardholder wallet pattern & instructions booklet

Not included:
