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.
