Communs pour le travail du cuir

I have been trying to design items around leaves lately, and more specifically to design smoker’s accessories incorporating a tobacco leaf. After player around with the idea of a cigarette case this time I wanted to make a tobacco pouch. I’ve also been very interested in leathercraft projects that require no sewing and I am fiddling with a few origami wallets ideas so this was the perfect opportunity to start working with this kind of design.


Pré-requis


Techniques

Outils

  • Couteau de précision ou ciseaux
  • Some kind of applicator for the dye (cotton swab, rag…)

  • Leather dye
  • Leather finishing product
  • Huile

Étapes de conception


Imprimer et découper le patron

Le PDF pour le patron est disponible ici.

Print it on A4 paper and cut-out the body of the pouch.

Prenez soin de vérifier que les dimensions du patron n'ont pas été altérées durant l'impression. Pour ce faire vous pouvez vérifier les mesures du carré d’étalonnage qui doit mesurer 5cm de coté.

Imprimer sur un papier épais rendra l'étape du traçage sur le cuir plus aisée. Un papier de 200g/cm2 ou plus est idéal, tant que votre imprimante peut le tolérer.


Tracing the pattern onto the leather

Trace the outline of the pattern onto the leather with an awl.

Dampen the leather below the area of the leaf before tracing over the lines of the leaf.


Teinter le cuir

I first used a very light layer of diluted blue before moving on to the hazelnut and green layers.

Apply some oil after dyeing to protect the pigments and re-hydrate the leather.


Cutting-out the pouch

Cut-out the pouch and the 3 slots.


Brunir les tranches

I used some Tokonole and an wooden edge slicker.


Cutting the lace

This step could be done with scissors as well.


Folding the pouch

Wet the edges where the pouch will be folded.

Fold and thread the lace through the slots. Knot inside to secure it.


Résultat final

There you go! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
