Leather EDC keychain 2.0 pattern

This keychain wallet features some pockets to hold everyday items. Options vary. I use to carry a Leatherman Piranha (which is TSA compliant but don’t be too optimistic), a pen, a comb, tweezers, some business cards. The key rings have rivets; for a once-in-a-while job you can try at the local shoe repair store to ask to apply the rivets for you.

My only note here is that pocket width should be adjusted based on what you want to put in it.

Leather glass case pattern, lined with rolled edges

This is the pattern I use to make glass cases. This pattern has rolled edges. They are tricky to get right, but they allow to line the case with fabric. I use Italian printed silk. The silk is glued using glue sheets.

The pattern has a couple concentric lines. The inner line is where skiving should start (this is the most difficult part). The fabric should be glued at least up to the stitching points.

If skiving goes wrong, you have the option to patch it with some other leather rectangle, like the blue one in these pictures. Or throw it away and start over.

Leather 40mm belt pattern

This is the pattern I use to make belts. It is meant for 40mm wide belts. It is fully stitched (no rivets).

A wedge is needed to shape the belt loop. I recommend letting the loop rest for 48 hours. Wetting the loop will probably bring better results. The loop length should be adjusted based on the leather thickness.

I also recommend thinning the leather on the part where the loop is, with the help of a skiving machine.

Leather magnetic cable holder pattern

Let my first pattern to be related to wires. It’s a cable holder. It’s meant to tidy up your cluttered wires. It doesn’t look like it came out of a datacenter.

This holder is designed to wrap a 10x20x60mm magnet, and stick to a magnetic surface (in the picture, it’s a magnetic glass wall). Dimensions might need a bit of adjustment as Chinese magnets tend to have impredictable sizes.
