you, clever: calculate the bending radius and add material as needed
me, an absolute moron: adds material, then just bends it around a pen to see where to punch holes (sharpie marks on this picture)

re: leatherposting 

Well, it might be too small for full sized pens, but with 75% it looks pretty good :)

Got a few dimensions to fix on the next one, but for now I鈥檓 gonna burnish the edges so I can call that one done

re: leatherposting 

Now all I need to do is thin the flap so it fits in the buckle, and then burnish all the edges!

And then start making the second one that鈥檚 to size lol 馃槗

Oookay so I re-stitched the center, buuuut unforeseen consequence: now the flap can鈥檛 work. This can only work with shorter pens. At this point I think I鈥檓 gonna finish it for myself and then make a better, working version as the gift I was intending this to be

(First pic is with a standard-size sharpie, second is with a smaller-size fountain pen)
