Homemade Leather Wallet

Posted on February 6, 2013

As you can probably tell from the pictures below, I’ve been using my handmade leather wallet for a while now.  I originally decided to make a new one, just to see if I could.  For years now, I’ve carried around a tri-fold wallet that would just continue collect stuff – receipts, ATM slips, business cards, you name it.  I decided that I wanted to move to a smaller wallet, to hopefully keep me from ending up with such a brick in my pocket.  So far, it’s worked pretty well.  I’m now forced to clean it out more often, which has helped to keep it smaller.  If/when I remake it, I’m probably going to make the bill area a little thicker. As you can also tell from the pictures, it’s time to clean it out again…

UPDATE:  I’ve created a new post with pictures of the wallet that show how it’s held up, and developed a great patina, over time.
