I wanted to make a case for him, that was like no other.
A pocket for notes, a stylus pocket, leather and elastic holders on the edges. It closes with a braided elastic cord, that can be replaced as it gets stretched out with use. The cord also connects to the tab on the left side, acting as a brace.
This is a design that I made up, with inspiration from a few different cases I saw on the internet.
Leather scraps were used for the outer, and a beautiful bird print lines it. The stiff-ness comes from a book cover, trashed by my son over the past few months.
It ain't easy, working with leather. Kind of a one-shot-deal. Once you punch holes in that sucker with your needle, it's there forever.
