In this project video, I show you how to make a simple leather field notebook cover for a Field Notes notebook cover. This is a great entry level project and a great gift idea project. I make this cover out of 3/4 oz leather with minimal hand stitching. It’s also a great use of scrap leather you may have laying around your shop.
We do offer a pattern pack for making one of these notebook covers. The pattern pack includes the cut patterns as well as 6 different floral patterns. We offer this pattern in either a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD or a PRINTED version.
You can purchase your copy of this pattern by clicking on one of the following links:
PRINTED VERSION that we mail out to you.
DIGITAL DOWNLOAD that you print out on your own printer.
I got the thread, needles, and field notes notebooks from Maker’s Leather Supply so check them out.
