Make It: DIY Leather Magazine Holder

DIY Leather Magazine Holder

I have an an obsession with interior design books and magazines. There are stacks of them all over my house. I wanted to make a simple magazine holder for the ones I'm currently reading to keep them easily accessible. Read on to see my leather magazine holder tutorial!

Step

Use the right angle ruler to create a straight edge (on the cut edge) of your leather. Cut along your drawn line. I always line one side of the ruler with the selvage edge, draw a line on the outside, and straighten the cut.

Use the ruler to measure and cut a long strip of leather. Since I used faux leather I had a 60 inch long piece. The width is your choice. I simply made it the width of the ruler to make it easy and straight.

Repeat step 2 to get the second strap.

Since my hoop was an old picture frame, I first removed the glass and backing. Next, wrap the first strap around your hoop. Overlap your ends until you find the loop length you desire.

Sew the overlapping ends of your strap together. I used a walking foot to help sew through the bulk of the faux leather. I also backstitched to make sure it was sturdy.

Repeat steps 4-5 for the second loop. Make sure the loops are the same size.

Once both straps are looped and sewn, you must sew them together, and cut the excess leather straps.

Use a nail or a hook to hang your loop. Position the sewn part to the back so it cannot be seen (in the second picture you can see it in the back).

I love the simplicity of this project. It's a functional and stylish way to keep my desk clear and organized. I might even make another one for my bedside table to clear off my stacks of magazines!
