Leather Crafts

To start with leather crafts project, I bought some basic tools set. There are many kinds of  leather crafts tools but these tools did good job for me and it works perfect . These tools are for beginners, I bought them from ebay and I made my wallet with it. The image of my wallet is in  Leather Crafts Gallery.

Tools for Leather crafts which I mostly use

This is Self-healing Cutting Mat. This is to use cutting only. Please Do Not use this to make holes in leather because it does not heal holes. You can buy this from eBay or any Stationary or Hobby-Crafts Shops.

You will need Glue, to glue your leather pieces before you sew them in place permanently. You can use PVA or UHU Glue.

 

practice Artificial Leather
Wallets made from Synthetic Leather

Before I made my Leather wallet which is in my Image gallery I used my old Diary cover, Business cardholder and hand bag which were made of synthetic Leather ( artificial leather ) for practicing. I think you should do the same because if you make mistakes you will waste the leather and money.

After you have practiced and ready to make any item from real Leather, you need to know that which leather and what weight leather you need for it. For this I will give some Leather Buying Guides and their measurement and what is for.
