Create irresistibly chic accessories with bits of tooling leather and colorful lanyards—those bright strips of plastic often used for camp crafts. If you're only planning to make one of the projects here, purchase a precut 8-1/2" x 11" piece of tooling leather; for multiple projects invest in an economy single leather shoulder. Both can easily be cut using a craft knife and our templates to make a mouse pad, card wallet, pen case, or sleeve for an iPad.
