Product Description

What’s in this kit? 

  • A piece of high quality Italian leather shoulder.
  • Elastic; a 115cm length of 2mm round elastic.
  • An A5 notebook with a central stitched spine.
  • A small piece of waxed linen thread.
  • A full instruction booklet (PDF format).

To complete this project you will need at home or to acquire. 

  • Something to cut the leather – a rotary cutter or sharp Stanley knife will work really well. Both are ideal. 
  • Something to cut on – a self healing cutting mat is perfect.  A chopping board will work just as well as long as the mat/board is longer than the side you’re going to cut. 
  • Rotary hole punch – this doesn’t need to be an expensive purchase, you can test out the one you’ve had sitting in a drawer for 10 years and only used once… I’m sure it’ll work just fine! 
  • A wooden or neoprene mallet – a mallet with a soft head that won’t damage your punch when we use it to make the central hole. 
  • Something to cut against – a metal safety ruler is ideal, you need to apply a fair amount of pressure when cutting the leather and you don’t want to slip and cut yourself (Trust me… it hurts!). A quilters ruler or set square to make sure your angles are correct is also useful, but not imperative. You can use a piece of A4 paper or the notebook provided in this kit.  
  • A piece of cardboard, wallpaper, paper; something to make a pattern with.
  • A pencil.
