MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES
- Scrap leather
- Standard hole punch
- A few binder clips
- Ruler (ideally a square)
Measure your phone and add ½ inch to the length and ¾ inch to the width.
The iPhone is 4.5x 2.5 inches, so the cut leather rectangles need to be 5 x 3¼ inches.
Cut out two rectangles to fit your phone and cut ¼-inch strips to use as the stitching. Depending on the length of your scrap, you may need to piece these together by tying them together end to end.
Use the binder clips to hold the two rectangles in place when you make the holes, so they line up.
Punch holes around three edges of the rectangles, keeping the pieces together.
The leather pieces should look like this before you start weaving.
Trim the ends of the strips so that they are tapered. Begin weaving by tying one end of the leather strip through the first set of holes.
Loop the leather through each set of holes until you reach the end.
When you reach the last hole, knot it closed.
Tie another piece of leather strip to the last hole to create a loop if your strip is not long enough.
