I love my iPad Pro. It helps me organize and sketch my ideas with the apps such as Procreate and Good Notes. The functionality of drawing with the Apple Pencil is awesome! But the pencil itself is pretty fragile. That is why I made this Apple Pencil Sleeve out of beautiful full grain veg tan leather. The top half of the sleeve is openable, this allows the Pencil to be pulled out of the sleeve without having to grab on the easy to pull off magnetic cap.

At InspireToMake we want you to be informed about your leather purchase. Here is a handy & easy to use leather thickness chart.

Leather thickness is usually measured in ounces. One ounce equals 1/64" in thickness. Thus, a weight of 4 to 5 oz. means the leather is 1/16" to 5/64" in thickness. The thickness of leather varies to some extent throughout the hide. This is why leather is usually shown with a range of thickness such as 4 to 5 oz., or 6 to 7 oz. As a comparison, a quarter (coin) is equal to a 4 oz. thickness. A standard thickness for belts is 7 to 8 oz leather. As most leather is sold in Ounce thickness, the approximate equivalent in inch fractions or millimeters can be compared in our chart.
