Things made with your own hands occupy in our lives a great place, bringing a uniqueness, individuality and delighting our eyes. Producers themselves popular gadgets released very stylish leather accessories with rough edges, ensuring it is a handmade design. And today we’ll find out how to make a case for a tablet.
We need to work quite a bit of time and materials. I repeat: it is not easy – it’s very easy. And we did not take more than an hour.
In order to determine how much you need to cover the skin, a ruler measure our tablet and leave indents on the sides.
We will need a piece of thick leather. This is a pleasant and harmless material, besides very dense and practical. Leather cover will look luxurious. This is not a problem to buy a suitable piece of skin. We can find the right color that will come to your bag or shoes, select the desired texture of the skin or stay on the skin embossed. It should be remembered that the skin is a natural material and the piece can be irregular in shape. Therefore, in order to avoid mistakes in the calculations, it is necessary to put the finished pattern or tablet to a piece of leather.
Also, we need:
- Pencil for marking;
- A pair of scissors;
- Railway line;
- Stationery knife;
- Punch for the skin;
Having prepared everything you need, we can get to work.
Mark up the pencil cover parts of the skin and cut.
I note that better skin cut with a sharp knife, not scissors. Then get a smooth, neat edge. Better to do it on the board, because on the table can remain cuts from a knife. Although you can certainly use scissors.
Folded between a part of the future case and align the edges, mark on the face of the place where we will punch holes.
The distance between the studs should be 1-2 in (2.5-5 cm), as long as it is between the studs was the same. When working with leather, comfortable for easy operation, lightly glue the parts together. This will allow you to baste, fasten them together and prevent movement of parts.
According to the target point punch holes using puncher and a hammer.
In holes on both sides of the cover, insert the two studs and tapping the rivet head, set them in place.
Done. Good for you!
