An original project that Mandi from Vintage Revivals dreamed up for domino. 
For this project you will need:

  • Leather (2 pieces that measure 11”x21” each)  My favorite place to find leather is from an old couch that needs a new lease on life.
  • (2) ¾” Grommets
  • (1) 24” piece of ½” copper pipe
  • (2) ½” copper pipe straps
  • (2) 6’ pieces of rope

Step 1: 

Start by folding your leather in half.  Mark the holes for your grommets by pressing them into the leather.

Cut the holes using a pair of scissors.

Step 3: 

Place your grommet.  Make sure that it is going through both pieces of leather!

Once your grommets are placed its time for the fun part!

Step 4: 

Take your rope and fold it in ½.  Place it over your copper pipe and feed it through the loop that you’ve created.  Do this for both pieces.

Step 5: 

Feed the ends of your rope through the back of the leather pouch (so that they are coming out of the front.)

Tie a knot and feed the ends back through the grommet.
