Gather your tools and materials. If you don't have a rotary punch for leather we are going to show you how to create this project with scissors or an X-Acto knife, so grab what you've got!

New-collection-catch-all-2 Pin-it%402x

Fold the suede in half diagonally. Pinching the corner.

New-collection-catch-all-3a Pin-it%402x

Pick up one side of a rivet and hold it on the corner of the suede. The placement should be centered with at least 1mm of suede showing on each side, by the edges. Mark the center point of the rivet with a pencil.

Repeat on the other folded side so you have two even pencil marks where the rivet will go. Repeat marking this spot on each of the remaining corners.

New-collection-catch-all-8a Pin-it%402x

If you are using a rotary punch. punch out all 8 pencil marks. Remember to set your punch to the right thickness for the rivet post.

To use an X-Acto knife make sure to grab a cutting mat to protect your surface. Cut a small "x" right on top of all the pencil markings. The "x" should be wide enough for the rivet post to fit through but not too large that the top of the rivets slide through.

New-collection-catch-all-16a Pin-it%402x

To use scissors, fold the suede in half right at the center of each marked point. Make one tiny snip and then fold it the opposite direction to make another tiny snip, creating a small cut "x" shape. The "x" should be wide enough for the rivet post to fit through but not too large that the top of the rivets slide through.

New-collection-catch-all-16 Pin-it%402x

Fold the corners diagonally again and push one smooth side rivet through both holes.

New-collection-catch-all-17 Pin-it%402x

Screw the other side of the rivet to the first and repeat for each corner.

This catchall is handy for so many things. Use it on your dresser to store rings and things or in your craft room for pins and needles.

Wowzers.... This is one of the MOST AWESOME projects you have designed!!! I'm going to find lots of rivets and use the tons of coloured leather and vintage suede I have to make slews of these!!! If I waterproof the leather I'll be set!! Thank you for your continual inspiration!!

Oh my gosh! This is awesome! Such a simple, yet elegant craft! I made this for my hubs-to-be's birthday! He's going to totally dig it! I think I'm going to get more scrap faux leather and make more for Christmas gifts! Thanks for the inspiration! P.S. I used my Crop-A-Dile hole puncher on the 3/16 setting to punch the holes with ease. =)
