Crafting leather goods might be intimidating, but it is actually fairly simple with the right tools and tuteledge. We at luxe DIY blog How Did You Make This? put this Skillshare class together as a way to equip you with the knowldge and techniques to make beautiful, high quality leather items of your own!   

What You'll Learn

Through exclusive video content and tutorials, lessons will highlight:

  • Determining leather tools to purchase
  • Discerning how to buy leather
  • Crafting how to cut, sew, and finish leather
  • Technique two different ways to sew seams in leather

We will be walking you through building a wallet and messenger bag in order to illustrate certain construction methods. You do not need a sewing machine to take part in this project, as you will be amazed at how much a few tools can accomplish.  

This class is perfect for anyone who wants to get started working with leather or someone who has some experience but would like to expand his or her skills.
