What We will be making a Leather Field Notes Cover with Pen Slot
Host Jorge Soto

About this Event
We will be making a Leather Field Notes cover you get to keep and we will be using finished leather. No dyeing. These notebooks make great gifts.

Techniques Used:

  • Cutting Leather
    – We’ll use a template to mark the 4 pieces needed to make the cover, and use a box cutter to cut the pieces to size.

  • Using a groover
    – The groover will mark the line we’ll use for stitching the journal together.

  • Punching Diamond Holes for Stitching
    – We’ll use the diamond hole punch to make the stitch holes.

  • Saddle Stitching
    – You’ll learn saddle stitching to put all the pieces together.

Class Time:

  • 2 hours scheduled, but actual time will vary.

Cost: $10.00
Restrictions: Ages 18+

I signed up. Looking forward to it. Does the class include the notebook or do I need to buy one?

Great class by Jorge, I highly recommend his leather classes to anyone interested.

The vertical framing on your snapshots makes the previews look a bit odd :slight_smile:

Yeah, the posting preview shows them different than the actual post does. I just need to only take pictures in landscape from now on!
