- (2) 13″ x 17″ cuts of fabric
- heavy interfacing
- scrap/craft leather
- utility knife, needle, thread
You can find these little cuts of leather at most craft stores for just a couple of bucks.
1. With right sides facing, sew the two cuts of fabric together all the way around the perimeter leaving a few inches unsewn.
2.Snip the corners off. This will help make the corners nice and crisp.
3.Turn right-side-out, and press.
4.Fold the bottom 5″ up. Pin in place, and stitch all the way around the perimeter.
5.Use a utility knife to cut out two strips of leather — one 1/2″ x 3″ and one 1″ x 4″.
6.Hand stitch the leather strips into place — using the larger of the two on the flap and the smaller on the bottom.
Tip: If you make guide holes in the leather with a straight pin first, it makes the hand-stitching worlds easier.\
