DLD patterns by Danesh Leather Design are intended for Leather crafters who either want to practice or develop their skills or in need of innovative and up to par designs for their shop and small businesses.

The Bilge card holder is an all curve design, shaped like an Oak barrel. The pattern is meant for intermediate and professional leather mainly because some experience with hand cutting is required, but I highly recommend beginners to take on this challenge, the experience will surely upgrade your cutting skills, especially cutting curves and detailed cutting which are important skills that would allow you to take on more complicated projects.

Recommended leather for the Barrel should be 1-1.4mm thick for best results although it would work also with thicker leather. Temper should be medium to hard. A few tests also proved that 3.0mm pricking irons work best, but any size would work.

I invite you to visit my website at and my instagram account at @daneshleatherdesign to follow and look at the full collection of patterns available to download, you can also see the finished items, discuss designs and learn advanced techniques and skills.

Bilge card holder pattern

The simplicity of this pattern makes it a great project for all levels of craftsmanship to construct. The curves of this card holder are very pleasing to the eye and fits in your pocket nicely.
