Thread: Wallet I made

    Default Wallet I made

    Hello everyone,

    I was looking through this forum a while back and was so impressed by peoples wallet efforts that I thought I would try making my own. I made this one for my friend "Sporsey" hence why it has "Sporsey" written on it. It is made from one piece of Sheep Leather with Brass hardware and a cord from a military surplus store. Cash goes in the unfurled section via an opening that's kinda hard to see in the pic, while there's 5 sections for cards. Let me know what you think. And please excuse my rough photoshopping in the first pic

    That's a nice wallet! Been wanting to make one myself too, but in a heavier leather. I don't know if the cord would be annoying, but i like the look of it, and i really like the brass details. Are they some kind of small screws?

    Yeah I could see how people would find the cord annoying, I like it though because I can tie my keys and stuff up in it and have a little wallet/key bundle. The brass details are called "Chicago bolts" or Chicago Screws". I think they are popular in the book binding trade but you see them in belts and the like too.

    Probably a thinner cord or leather strap would be good? Just my opinion
