working with leather

my first handcraft workflow, getting to know the material

This was my first time working with leather, molding and sewing only by hand. After watching several youtube tutorials of professionals I decided to try the learnings out. I molded a small case for my AirPods. First the leather soaked in water, then the shape is molded around the case (wrapped in foil first), with fingers and pieces of wood, I stapled the leather on a wood block. After an overnight drying time, I removed the staples and took the molded leather of the AirPod case. In the video you can follow my process. For sure this is not a professional process, but it was a first time and a great learning.

Next steps: I am planning to try machinery molding in the next days.
