Leather Crafting – Making an EDC Zipper Pouch
Leather Crafting gets a bit more advanced when you start sewing zippers into your work. In this video we make a nice leather zippered pouch. This design can be used to carry all of your EDC (every day carry) pieces, it can also be used as a purse or clutch, you can also adjust the size to make it bigger for or smaller to carry tablets or to use as a wallet.
Sewing in a zipper by hand is fairly simple once you get the hang of it. I use basting tape to attach the zipper to the leather, which holds it firmly in place while I punch and hand stitch the zipper to the leather. Once that is complete, it’s just a matter of hand sewing all of the other leather pieces together with waxed thread, burnishing, and finishing up the piece.
As a side note, you can also use basting tape to attach leather pieces to each other. This tape does not provide the structural strength of leather cement, however in a piece like the card slot where there is not much movement the stitching is more than strong enough. Basting tape makes for a much cleaner, easier way to line up a piece of leather that is centered on another piece of leather, just remember to burnish your edges before installing!
