How to custom a personalized leather wallets for him

Wallets are deceivingly simple to make as long as you have the right material and basic sewing abilities. You can make a leather wallet as long as you have a heavy-duty needle and are able to hand sew, or you can try an easier cloth wallet if you want to machine sew it together. Here’s how to make both types.

Mark out your dimensions. Use chalk or a pencil to mark the dimensions of your leather before cutting the pieces out. You will need to mark out a large piece of moose skin for the body or base of the wallet and several smaller pieces of embossed cowhide for change pockets and card pockets.

  • The moose skin should be be roughly 11 inches (28 cm) long by 7.5 inches (19 cm) wide.
  • Each card pocket should measure roughly 4 inches (10 cm) long by 2 inches (5 cm) wide. Make anywhere from one to three card pockets.
  • The change pocket should be about 3 inches (7.5 cm) by 3 inches (7.5 cm).

Cut the leather out body out with a sharp knife. Place your leather on the cutting board and use a sharp utility knife to cut out the pieces along the lines your marked. Cut out the body of the wallet and each pocket.

  • You also need to create two snap tabs on the leather used for the body of the wallet. The snap tabs should be about 2 inches (5 cm) by 2 inches (5 cm) and both placed on the left side of the leather. Cut away about 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) from the top and bottom of the tabs and cut out about 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) from in between the two tabs.

Temporarily tape or pin the pockets to the body. Lay the card pockets on top of one another so that the top 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) of each patch remains visible. Center this in the upper right quarter of the wallet body. Center the change pocket in the upper left quarter of the wallet body.

  • Use tape or thick, sharp sewing pins to hold the pockets in place.

Punch holes into the leather. Use a rotary punch to punch holes in the card pockets, change pocket, and the leather directly beneath both sets of pockets.

  • Punch holes into the leather while the pockets are pinned or taped down to the body of the wallet. This ensures that the holes will be correctly aligned.
  • Place a piece of thick leather hide below your wallet as you use the rotary punch. Doing so makes it easier to punch holes in the leather.
  • Do not punch holes along the top of the pocket.

Sew the pockets to the base. Thread a sewing needle with waxed thread and stitch each pocket to the body of the wallet. Sew the pockets by weaving the thread in and out of the holes created with your rotary punch.

  • Start from the inside of the wallet to hide the knot. The inside of the wallet will be the side with the pocket facing up.
  • Do not stitch along the top of each pocket.
  • Stitch each pocket onto the wallet twice for added strength.
  • If desired, use a lighter to carefully and slightly burn the knot, melting the wax together for a more permanent hold.
  • Remove the tape or pins when done.
