About This Class

I teach you step-by-step how to make this leather laptop sleeve from scratch.  Learn the basics of hand sewing leather. Once you’ve learned the basics you’ll be able to make this simple but amazing laptop sleeve.

I've made a lot of leather products so I love to teach you one of my favorite items! I only make products from upcycled materials. So I hope you can also find some used leather like an old jacket or leather furniture.

I teach you:

  • What you need, materials and tools
  • How to make your own and unique pattern
  • Working with your leather
  • How to stitch
