Materials List

  • 1/4 yard (vegan/faux) leather
  • 1/4 yard quilt batting
  • 1/4 yard thin cotton for backing
  • 1/4 yard lining fabric
  • 12" zipper (I couldn’t find one this length that I liked so I used a much longer one, but you can trim it to fit)
  • 3/4" D ring
  • optional: scrap interfacing
  • Sewing Essentials (scissors, pins, etc.)


  1. Cut 2 pieces of backing fabric approximately 14" x 7". Using a quilting ruler, draw a 1" diagonal grid (45 degrees from the edge of the fabric).

  2. Cut 2 pieces each of quilt batting and leather the same size as the backing (14" x 7") Sandwich a layer of quilt batting between the wrong sides of the leather and the backing material. Use a spray adhesive or glue stick to keep the layers together.

  3. Use your lines as a guide, and quilt all the layers together. Trim rectangles to 13" x 6"

  4. Cut 2 more rectangles (13" x 6") out of the lining material. Cut leather for the strap: 1 piece 2" x 2", 1 piece 14" x 2". My leather was quite thin so I added some interfacing to the strap pieces.

  5. Fold under the raw edges of the strap pieces by 1/4". Fold in half. I use glue stick to keep the strap together while I stitch (don’t use pins that can poke a hole in the leather). Stitch both long ends.

  6. Thread the short piece through the D ring and baste the raw ends together.
