  • How to sew a leather pouch. Diy Pyramid Leather Pouch - Step 1
    Step 1

    This is the template I used for making the pyramid pouch. It includes 4 equilateral triangles and a strip. The triangles are for the body of the pouch and the strip will be the handle of the pouch. Notice that I've numbered the pieces with alphabets- a,b,c,d and e, for clear instructions.

    The length of the gap between the two triangles should be equal to the length of the zipper, so make sure to cut the zipper accordingly. Take the zipper, place it between the two sewed triangles (on the wrong side of the opening). Sew along the sides of the zipper with the triangles. * Don't forget to keep the zipper half open while sewing the triangles.
