New Year is coming soon, and as we all know, the best gift is a gift made with your own hands!
Today I will show you how to make a medieval purse. It is not difficult to make, it will take you a couple of hours.
We will need:
- leather with a thickness of ~1.2 mm, soft, almost like a thick cloth;
- an A4 sheet;
- an awl;
- two needles;
- thread, 0.65–1 mm.
First you need to build the pattern: fold a sheet of A4 four times as shown in the photo.
Draw on the resulted rectangle a shape as in the photo and cut.
After unfolding you should have this pattern:
Apply our pattern to leather and draw out the contour with an awl so that there is a trail for cutting our detail.
Further mark the center on the pattern, apply it to the detail, mark points and cut into 2 parts.
The next step is gluing, we need to apply glue very thinly, approximately 2-3 mm from the edge. The glue should be applied to both parts. The glue is applied on the front part of the leather, as we will turn out the product and the seam will be inside the purse.
It is necessary to mark the contour, we will make holes according to it, we need to step approximately 3 mm from the edge, if you do not have a parallel marker, you can draw by hand with a fine marker. Your markup will not be seen, as the seam will be inside the purse.
Make the holes and stitch by saddle stitches, that's what we get:
Turn out our purse and make holes for the drawstring. It is better to make even number of holes, or use thinner cord... Do not repeat my mistakes :)
The length of the cord of 30cm should be enough. Thread it, fill the pouch with gold and you can give it!
Thank you, and happy upcoming New Year! If you have questions, ask in private messages :)
