After thinking about this material for a long time, I finally bought some essential tools and started working on this card holder / money clip from leather.
Stay with me until the end of the video and we will compare this quick sketch with the finished product.

Looks awesome!!
i cannot find a money clip of that design anywhere, not that isn't already built into something..where did you get yours? this is a very functionally simple design and i dig it but i can't find the piece to make my own like you have.
Perfect timing! My father in law has one just like this except with card holders on both sides. I told him I would make him one. Because he likes the one he has, but it's falling apart. I wasn't quite sure on how to do the money clip part.
I love the card holder design and how the red thread stands out so well from the black leather :)
