Leather Coin Pouch

Note: This is an un-tooled, un-dyed leather kit. If you would like to do tooling, design, or dying, it would need to be done prior to assembling.

1. Using thread and needle, attach the body to the gusset, aligning holes of the body over holes in the gusset (smooth sides up). Sew the two pieces of leather together using a double running stitch.
2. Using the cord, feed cord ends down through the two holes in the side of the body piece that has the socket half of the snap. Pull cord ends through until even. Using one end, weave cord in and out around gusset until cord comes out of the other side of the body piece that has the snap cap. Repeat with the other cord end on the other side.
3. To close pouch, pull loose ends of cord until pouch closes. Use snaps to close fully.

Tip: For a more finished look, tap stitched down flat with a mallet.
