Make a Half Inch Three Leather Note Book Binder

Leather note book binders are very durable and often pricey. Creating your own leather binder is  not as difficult as it might seem. Basically a simple leather binder can be created by cutting a piece of leather large enough to cover your paper of choice and thick enough to hold a half inch of those papers. A non-fray fabric can be glued to the inside of the leather and holes punched on either side of the spine for bindery rings. Once you make a simple binder you will have the basic skills to make a three-leather
Select three different leathers. When possible, try to use leathers that are the same thickness or flexibility. Notebooks need to be fairly rigid, so very soft leathers would need to be mounted in order to hold up as a notebook. By choosing naturally rigid leathers, you can avoid additional steps.
Choose a pattern or design for combining your three leathers. Sketch out your pattern on paper that is 11 1/2 by 20 inches. This is your finished size. Cut out your pattern with scissors after marking each section with a color code.
Trace around the outside of each pattern onto the leather using a marker. Cut out all of your pieces with leather shears. Make sure you keep a sketch of how your pieces are arranged.
Hammer holes into the leather with a thonging chisel, a hardwood block and a mallet. A thonging chisel is a leather tool that is somewhat like a fork. It will punch several evenly spaced holes that are used for lacing leathers together. Place the leather face up over the hardwood. Position the chisel at your starting point and hammer the chisel with a mallet.
Lace your pieces of leather together using a loop stitch. Cut cord lacing 3 to 4 feet long. Place the last half-inch of the cord along the seam where two pieces of leather will be laced together.The cord should face the direction you will lace. Bring your cord up from behind through the top hole. Cross over the leather to the top hole in the second leather piece. Go under and come up through the second hole in the first leather. Continue until your cover is laced.
Punch six holes in your cover. With the cover laying horizontally on your work table. Measure over from the left side 8 1/2 inches. Measure over from the right side 8 1/2 inches. Place a sheet of three-hole notebook paper at your first mark. Center the paper in your 11 1/2-inch height. Mark your holes. Turn the paper over and repeat in reverse for your second set of three holes. Punch your holes with a hole punch or large awl.
Cut fabric 11 1/2 by 20 inches. Sew a quarter-inch hem around all sides. Spray fabric glue to the back side and center and attach the fabric to the inside of the cover, pressing firmly. Poke your holes through the fabric. Thread three bindery rings through each set of holes.
