Blue leather clippouchI need a storage pouch for some small tools. I have some flex frames that I can use for that purpose. I also have some leather lying around.

design clippouchIt's a fairly simple design. I'll explain in a few steps how to make it. You can download the pattern I designed for A4 size or A3 size for free.
Print the pattern and cut it out. If you printed it on A4, you need to stick the parts together. Place the pattern on your leather. The seams are already included in the pattern where necessary, so you can place the pattern tightly against each other if you wish.
put the pattern pieces on the leather
The clip has the right sizeHere you can see that the clip I have, 12 cm, fits perfectly with this pattern. If you have a different type of clip, make sure the height of the tunnel where the clip needs to go through is generous, otherwise it won't fit.
Secure the pattern with tape. I just used transparent tape, but you can also use masking tape. Cut the leather out tightly along your pattern. Use a ruler for the long straight parts.

remove the tape leftovers from the leatherall pieces cut from leatherWhen you're done, remove all leftover tape from the leather you want to keep. If you leave it on for too long, it will be difficult to remove later.
mark the stitchlinesI mark the stitching lines on the inside of the leather with a silver pen. I also mark the stitching line of the clip tunnel on the right side of the leather with a thin line. I need to punch holes here later, and it needs to be done as neatly as possible. That's where a line really comes in handy. The pattern is no longer needed. I keep all my patterns in a folder so I can use them again. I often include a piece of the used leather.
