DIY Leather Traveler’s Notebook Cover with a Pocket

So, while I am waffling on exactly how I want to make my next TN cover I am watching videos of other people actually making their covers. What better source of inspiration is there?

I digress. This one jumped out at me because Hadrian takes the time to hand sew his leather. Hallelujah. Bellisimo! And it’s a project that is beginner (leatherworking) friendly. He does a good job of showing you the minimum tools and how to use them. This is very doable and comes out looking really good. 

This project nicely maintains the minimalism of the original TN, with just a little extra. And you can sub to the maker’s channel: here.

Of course, if you’re not going to make a few of these, you are probably better off (read: financially better off) just getting a nice cover already made. But why buy something when you can DIY it for 3x the cost!? Right? Right?
