You have to get a hobby.............try something you have not done before.

So I looked for something where I could make stuff using new skills so after some thought and viewing a few youtube videos I decided to have a crack at leatherworking ..well why not.

I produced all my stuff from scratch and after 3 iterations for a small battery case I ended up with the design below for my fuji batteries.

A stitch in time saves nine Paul. They do look very good quality. Nice work. We all will want a case for our batteries soon.

Nicely done, they look professional. Now you need to open an Etsy store and sell them :)

I used a box stitch which is a saddle stitch at an angle so there is no stitching on the inside and joins butted up leather it is one of the more difficult stitches to start with but makes a neat case one which i am happier with than my previous gusseted and attempt at wet forming both worked ok but added to much bulk for me.

Thanks for all your comments much appreciated .....us old uns need encouraging

That does look like a very well crafted product.
I bought the basic gear to do book binding - idea being to make a really good photo album......maybe even offer to make bespoke wedding albums....but I just don't have the time at present. Your skills here would lend to nice leather covers.
