One of the great things about working with leather is that there are incredible amounts of applications or custom designs to fit someone's needs. A gentleman from Canada inquired about a leather police notebook cover to replace his current beat-up, standard issue cover. The project sounded totally attainable and within my capabilities.
After some discussion, we decided on natural veg-tanned leather that would be dyed black with some Royal Blue Maine Thread Company .040" waxed polycord. I loved the pop in color with the blue thread and this was one of the first times I've used Maine Thread Company before. The notebook cover measured 3.750" x 11" and had slots to hold the notebook, a pocket on the inside for a laminated ID Card, and a pocket on the outside for a traffic template. The front had the 5 digit badge number and LBL logo on the back. Overall, I was very pleased with how this turned out and my customer loved the cover.
