Make This: Simple, Classic Leather Key Chain (in 30 Minutes)

There's something to be said for the all-in project. The weekend filling, head-scratching, multiple-trips-to-the-store, major build project that ends up so satisfying, and useful, once it's complete. But there's also something to be said for the straightforward, quick and simple project that can be started and finished after you get home from work. For those times when you don't always have the capability, or bandwidth, to take on something huge, but that creative spirit just keeps telling you to make stuff… make stuff…

This leather key chain project from our buddy Evan at Mr. Lentz is a perfect example of an accessible and functional project that doesn't require any major problem solving, or a big budget. Sure, it requires a few specific leatherworking pecific tools and little general know-how, but it could also be a perfect way to learn basic stitching and edge prep. Evan whipped up a very helpful video that clocks in at 23:00 (with no fancy cuts or sped up footage), proving that you really can do something awesome in under half an hour.
