Split rings
Chain closure
Sewing machine -OR- needle and thread
Scrap of leather

Step 1: Draw your shape on the leather with a pen making sure the smallest point at the fold fits through the split ring. You'll be folding it over, so mirror one side to the other and trace it.

Step 2: Cut the leather on the folded line.

Step 3: Repeat to create two of these leather pieces.
Step 4: Connect the chain closure to the split ring.

Step 5: Slide the ring to the middle section of the leather.

Step 6: Fold the end of the scarf in an accordion fold, small enough so that it fits into the leather.

Step 7: Stick the leather to the scarf in place.

Step 8: With your sewing machine, stitch around the edge of the leather (as indicated in the picture). Make sure you have a special needle that works for leather. Otherwise, hand stitch it.

That’s it!
