It was an ambitious one for a beginner like me as I have absolutely NO IDEA on how to go about doing it. All I can do is to reverse engineer it from my existing wallet and pray it won't come out looking like crap.
Lots of trial and errors during the process
Using the leather remnants. It's a waste to let these precious leather go to rubbish bin.
After 4 hours of work, finally something that vaguely looks like a wallet came about:
Nope. I'm not an Indonesian.. Just using some notes from my Bintan Tour earlier to cover up the bad-looking stitching.
The leather was difficult to work on because it was very thin and soft. There are portions where 5 layers of leather were overlapping and it was yet fairly easy to sew. This shows how soft it was. Not an ideal leather to work on for small leather goods.
All in all, it was an interesting experience and thrilled to be able to get my hands on the tools.
