Linds Handmade – Pocket Pal Paper Pattern


This is a beginner friendly pattern, but you should be comfortable with inserting zippers, and cutting & sewing accurately which will make all the difference in the overall end look since the edges are left raw.  If you’ve never sewn with cork, vinyl or leather before, please read the “Tips & Tidbits” section carefully where we share our tips for sewing with these materials.
