I’m so lucky to be married to a saddle maker. And I’m quite lucky to have access to his shop (i.e. its in the house). Sometimes I get to do fun things like take some of his leather for my own projects!
As you already know, I’m a major bargain shopper. I generally keep my coupons in a plain white envelope however I’m having to replace the envelope often because of how beaten up it gets. That’s when Nate suggested that I make a coupon holder out of leather.
He really is a genius.
I tore apart the envelope to create my pattern. Found some ‘scrap’ leather from around the shop. Added on a small pouch to the front for my supermarket cards. And then used Nate’s industrial sewing machines to sew it up. To finish it, we added a snap and I oiled the leather.
I can’t wait to go shopping!
