Measure and Cut
Cut a piece of leather and a piece of fun, patterned fabric, each measuring 11x5-1/2 inches.
Clip in Place
Layer the leather and fabric pieces on top of one another, right sides facing out. Place clips in the center to hold the pieces together. Fold the outer edges in approximately 1 1/2 inches and clip those as well. Tip: Use clips instead of pins to avoid punching holes in the leather. You may want to experiment with the right tools for the textiles that you use.
Sew Pieces Together
Sew a straight stitch along all four sides, approximately 1/4-inch from the edge.
