Picture of AirPods Leather Case

A friend of mine wanted a leather case for his AirPods. After a few Web searches for ideas and 3 discarded prototypes I settled with this design. The oil tanned leather gives the case an "old distressed" look. I will include the PDF template on the instructable so any one can make their own. With a 12" by 12" (about $6) you can make at least 3. It has an optional small carabiner on the back so you can secure it to your backpack. I strongly recommend it. In the last step you will see an example of the real advantage of adding it.

Step 1: Materials

  • Leather 8" x 3"
  • Carabiner (optional)
  • Hand awl
  • Needles
  • Waxed thread (6 threads, approximately 6" each)
  • Scissor
  • Double sided sewing tape
  • Box cutter
  • Ruler
  • Hammer
  • Compass divider
  • Hole Stitching Punch
  • Snap fasteners
  • Snap fastener Setter Base
  • Brass logo (optional, but really cool)
