Making a Handmade Leather Wallet with Nigel Armitage



During this course you will Measure, Cut, Prepare, Stitch & Finish a basic Bi-Fold Wallet. You will have the finished item to take home with you as well as the instruction pack & a pattern-set in the leather of your choice to practise in your own time.

You will learn and have an understanding of the principles of the saddle stitch which can then be applied to other projects and are a good foundation on which to build.
