Over the end of last year, I was so busy making up handmade gifts for friends, relatives and family members. This no-sew Leather Pouch is one of the gifts I have done. It is made from genuine soft leather and the size is 4″ (W) x 2 1/2″ (H). It is perfect for keeping loose coins and small notes, or, for storing your business cards, discount cards etc.
In order to further enhance the design, I used high quality permanent ink to stamp and decorate the Leather Pouch. The permanent ink I used is Stazon and I have tested that they durable on leather. Add some metal embellishments as you wish for a touch of refinement.
The leathers used in this pouch are pigment coated finished leather scraps. I bought the leather from a shop where they collected the scraps from sofa factory, car seat factory and other leather goods factories. Since I only need a small piece (10″ x 6″) of leather to make this little pouch, these scraps are more than enough to make a few of them in different colors. You may also salvaged leather from big old furniture or big bags since some parts of them are still in good condition.
The Leather Pouch uses easy-to-install Button Stud flap closure, all you need is to punch a couples of holes on the no-sew Leather Pouch (holes positions are stated in the pouch template), follow the details on next page on how to screw them together to make up the pouch.
The capacity of the no-sew Leather Pouch can easily handles 8 to 10 loyalty cards, or about 30 business cards.
If you prefer, the no-sew leather Pouch can be used as coin purse to keep loose coins and small notes instead of using it as card pouch. It is ideal for school kids to bring their lunch money to school.
I find both of them came handy inside my big purse, so I made 2 for myself, one as card pouch and one as coin purse.
It is a perfect gift to make for Father’s Day and Back To School, for men and school boys respectively, just leave the design plain if you wish as men and boys might prefer plain pouch design. You can even make a pair of them for couples or newlywed couples; a plain design for him and a feminine design for her by using the same leather, for example. Both designs are equally charming.
