Homemade Leather Wallet – A Few Years In

Posted on February 8, 2018

I’ve been using my homemade leather wallet for a few years now and decided that it would be a good time to post some pics of how it’s held up over time.  Since making it, I haven’t fixed any stitching or re-sewn any edges.  It’s held up exceptionally well.

Front View –

The front pocket was a pre-finished piece from a kit that I found in an old box of junk.  It’s actually what started the whole thing.  I decided that I wanted to create a small, minimal wallet with that as the single pocket on it.  If you look at the picture in the original post, you can see that it’s lighter than the rest of the wallet.  Over time now, it’s darkened up to match the rest of the leather nicely…

 

Back view – The light spot is white paint that made it on there years ago, during some home remodeling project.

 

Inside View – Nice patina, IMO.

I just really like the look of well-worn leather…
