Leather Selection Suggestions

In this video we used 3oz natural vegetable tanned leather sourced from Wickett & Craig. If you are just looking to purchase a smaller amount of something similar for this project I suggest looking for a 24″x12″ project panel or shoulder from Springfield Leather or other leather supplier. The template is larger than 12″ so a 12″x12″ project panel wont be enough. If you are outside of the USA I’m not as privy on suppliers. However you could try one of these natural veg tan sides from A & A Crack & Sons. They have an awesome selection of leathers available to ship worldwide.

For this wallet I would suggest anywhere from 3oz tp 5oz. The thicker leather will work OK for the panels but will get bulky when creating the stacked card slots. Make sure to skive if using a thick leather. A great all around weight would be 3oz.

If you are not using a vegetable tanned leather to create this roper wallet your edge finishing guidelines will probably be different. Chrome-tanned leathers and extremely soft leathers like sheepskin are difficult and sometimes impossible to burnish by hand. If you would like to follow this tutorial to spec, we would suggest acquiring a burnish-able vegetable tanned leather.

Guidelines of Template Usage

We put a lot of time and effort into producing these templates, videos, and blog posts. Please do not distribute the template you have purchased from Makesupply. It’s not cool and hurts our feelings. However, you are free to do whatever you want with the end product you create using the template design. Even sell them on Etsy!
