Minfold Wallet DIY Kit (Brown Buttero)
The popular Minfold Wallet leather template is now available as a DIY kit!
Unlike our main template catalog, the DIY kits require no previous leatherworking experience, leather, or tools (except a pair of scissors!). The Minfold Wallet DIY Kit is great if you want to test the waters of leathercraft. Or if you are just looking for an awesome new wallet made out of top quality vegetable tanned leather and hand-stitched all by you.
Each kit contains all the items you need to complete one Minfold Wallet. The only tools you will need to bring to the table is a pair of scissors and a small glass of water for burnishing your edges. The items included are:
- One precision laser-cut Minfold Wallet body made from premium Italian vegetable tanned leather.
- One wrapping of durable waxed polycord thread from Maine Thread
- Two John James saddlers needles for saddle-stitching
- One piece of sandpaper for finishing edges
- One piece of heavy canvas for burnishing edges to a smooth finish
- One wooden pin for assistance in holding your wallet while saddle stitching
This Minfold Wallet DIY Kit is cut from premium "Buttero" vegetable tanned leather from Conceria Walpier Tannery in Italy. Your card wallet will age and patina with use taking on your personal wear patterns.

Another Note!: These kits are cut from full grain vegetable tanned leather. There may be minor markings on the surface of your leather that were acquired during the life of the animal or the tanning process. However we will never send you anything with cracks, holes, or cuts. These kits are also processed by laser cutting. You may notice a "burnt" smell when you first receive your kit but that will subside after a week or so.
