Leather enough for both pieces should be selected and cut off at starting, it must be worked Hat, or the raising will necessitate the use of lining, which would make the case too bulky for the pocket. The space at the back is intended for a monogram. The leather outside the fancy border lines should be lett quite plain. The design is to be cut and the ground hammered down and a pattern put on so as to make a contrast with the plain leather outside. Stained a rich green all over, the leather looks very well.
