Here we will start with grabbing out material and cutting a circle
1. First you will want to start with cutting out your material. There are a few different patterns but for this we will be doing a circle of soft leather roughly 6 inches in circumference. This will hold 28.7 grams .You can make it larger if need be.
2. Now you’ll take your whole puncher / awl and run holes along the outer rim. Make sure the holes are about an inch inward and 2 inches apart.
3. Now with your holes punched, get yourself a piece of rope or a thin piece of leather, run it through all of the holes.
4. Now feed the thread through all of the holes and synch it closed.
