The easiest Folding Leather Card Case tutorial

After my post here using the Leatherhidestore.com‘s awesome buttery soft leather I couldn’t help myself to make yet another leather card case. These things are so addicting to make, you could literally whip up a handful in a half hour. Plus they are just so useful. We all have a drivers license, credit cards, gym membership cards, etc that could use a pretty place to house them, no?Folding Leather Card Case

I used their Gold Rush leather to make this case, the golden tone is beautiful and makes for one eye-popping card case. Let me show you how I made it!

I tell you this leather is so soft! I really love this Gold Rush style as it shows wear really well. You can see crease marks from when I was figuring out how I wanted to fold this piece of leather and I love it…it gives it such nice vintage appeal.

You will want to start with a piece of leather measuring 4.25 inches by 8.75 inches.Folding Leather Card Case

Next fold over each end (wrong sides facing) 1.5 inches each and clip with a binder clip. Do not use pins as it will show in the leather!The easiest Folding Leather Card Case Tutorial

Then sew all the way around the entire rectangle of leather using  a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
