Dopp Kit Workshop: What's in the tool kit?
1 - Pull-up leather (34 x 34 cm) - This leather gets its name from the two-tone effect created when the leather is "pulled." To be more exact, pull-up leather gets lighter at areas where it folds or bends.
2 - Dopp kit pattern - a paper template that will serve as a guide in working on leather
3 - 1mm hollow puncher - a tool that punches out 1mm holes on leather
4 - Waxed thread - thread that is ideal for saddle stitching leather
5 - Tapestry needles (2 pcs, size 23) - needles with blunt ends
6 - Slider with built in puller (size 5) - functions to open and close the zipper's teeth
7 - Stoppers (2 pcs) - prevent the slider from hitting the leather edges
8 - Zipper (brass teeth, size 5) - a type of closure that usually covers the entire length of the bag or pouch's opening
9 - Contact cement in reusable squeeze bottle - a type of adhesive that is used on leather
Add-ons are optional tools for the class that can make the process easier or faster for you.
Stitching Pony - a stitching pony holds your leather as you saddle stitch. You may purchase this later after the class from the Smithy.
Multi-prong punchers - instead of punching stitching holes one by one, multi-prong punchers (as the name suggests) efficiently punch multiple holes at a time.
