Great gift for fathers and other guys!
Mason Jar pint size
2 sets of rivets
cat gut thread and heavy needle
leather hole punch (or heavy needle)
To start I measured my pint jar.
It's 10 1/4" around and 3 inches tall for a good coozie.
I used my rotary cutter, my guide and mat...
an x-acto or hobby knife/ruler would work too.
Cut one piece that measures 3 inches tall and 10 1/4 inches wide.
Cut a skinny strip that is 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch wide and 6 inches tall too!
If you don't have a punch, you can pierce the leather with a heavy needle.
First one with the leather wrong side out...
Now is a great time to tool and carve the leather if you want to.
I left it as a pattern...but want to add some pizazz to the next one!
doesn't quite make it all the way around.
No worries, leather is stretchy.
And thread it tight so the leather edges touch.
If it feels impossible to squeeze in...get the leather slightly wet and try again.
Mine went on tight but no problems.
What would you carve into the leather???
