Cutting the leather.

For this project I decided to use a vegetable oil tanned leather. It's 2mm thick and very firm. But it's not necessary to use a leather that thick. Then cut a rectangular piece by using the template. My key is 25mm wide, so if you have a different size of key, you need to create your own template.

Punching holes.

Use an awl to punch holes for sewing. Then use a hole punch to make two holes for the key ring.



I was using special leather stitching needles to sew the leather. But it's not necessary. You can use regular needle to do that. For this key I was using a saddle stitch method. After sewing everything together you can cut the corners of the key cover.


Enjoy your fancy key cover.
