Leather Battery Cover

Posted: November 19, 2010 in How-to's

Heres a How-To for that battery of yours!

1)  Get some leather from Tandy Leather or your local supplier.  We use a heavy top saddle type.

2)  Cut your pattern using light poster board or construction paper from your local arts and crafts supply.  Leave an additional 1/32 over your battery dimensions.

3)  Transfer your pattern to the leather

4)  Use an Awl or leather punch to make your thread holes.  Use a ruler to mark your holes symmetrically.

5)  Lace your preferred stitch pattern.  Hint : we start in the top corner, work down, then return back to the top and tie our knots in the top corners.
