This is a guide on how I made this simple minimal leather and wool wallet. For a detailed video, please check out the video.

Step 1: Measure and Cut Your Leather and Wool

I started with a large sheet of Veg Tan leather, this is 1.5mm thick. I made a template in Adobe Illustrator. I wanted to keep the wallet as small as physically possible so measured all the cards I wanted to fit in. As as general rule I don’t carry any cash, most places I go accept card, or contactless on my phone. Cut the rectangle of leather, I made mine;
140mm LONG x 95mm WIDE
I used a very sharp blade for this, taking the template I very lightly scored the leather, then using a set square to get a perfect straight cut, went all the way through the leather.
Next we move onto the wool, this is some 100% Wool felt, I love the look of this and it feel amazing. Cut sizes of this are;
45mm HIGH x 95mm WIDE
I marked this up using a dress makers pencil and cut out using some very sharp fabric scissors.

Step 2: Dye Your Leather

I use Feibing Waterbased dye, on this wallet I used the Dark Brown. Start by giving the bottle a little shake, then taking a wool dauber I stirred the dye a little as well. I wanted to make the wallet have an already aged and worn look so I applied the dye in random directions.

Then I worked my way around all the edges using the same dye, and flipped it over to get the back, or flesh, side of the leather. Taking a rag, I buffed off any excess dye left on the leather.
