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.
