DIY Leather Sleeve for Dad

Chanda and I are constantly looking for new leather projects. I am not sure what get’s us more excited, the texture and colors or the smell? I just know we both are always attracted to this material, especially every year when we get close to Father’s day. Leather just seems to make any “man craft” legit. With father’s day a little more than a week away it’s time to start thinking of what you can zest for pops. My dad is not much of a coffee drinker but man does he like his iced tea. While my husband on the other hand pounds the coffee all day everyday. But what I love about this craft is that it can go either way- hot or cold! Let’s get to zesting….

Wood burner

Leather hole punch
