I made this little leather pouch a few days ago, and it was surprisingly simple. I just used a leather punch and counted out all the holes so that it would fit together, then carved a little wooden fastener and used a wood/leather burner to make designs on it. I was going to burn designs on the pouch itself but the leather was very soft and it bunched up a lot and with a funny colour when I tested it on another piece, which explains the penciled in designs. I used a type of leather cord to hold it together, which is reasonably strong but it shed all over me when I was pulling it through the holes.
Sorry for not posting much recently, I’ve been pretty busy rehearsing for the school musical, The King and I. It’s amazing how much work you have to put in even when you’re not a major part. I’m so tired now.
I think school has actually destroyed my creativity. I can’t make things anymore. I’m too tired.
