Learn the basics of hand sewing leather, the different types of leather, the most common leather working techniques, and the names of a few of Fitzy's favourite local suppliers. Make your own hand stitched leather wallet, and lanyard from one of three leather finishes: nude, caramel or black. Once you’ve learned the basics of hand sewing you’ll be able to make your simple bags, cellphone cases, and more.
