Adding the O-rings to the M Moon Phone Pouch

If you've ordered the M Moon Phone Pouch after the 4th Dec 2020, you will have noticed a little addition [or two] that we've made to the design.

After many of you asked about adding a strap to this particular design, we listened, & we've now included the o-rings and the leather tabs with our leather kits for this size.

The o-rings are added to both faces of the pouch, one on the front, and one on the back. You can find the video tutorial below.

Here are the steps to add the o-rings> [M size only]

1. Glue the tab into place [0:00]
2. Poke holes of top two stitch rows [3:13]
3. Prepare the thread [3:51]
4. Stitch the 1st row above the slit [5:10]
5. Stitch the 2nd row above the slit [9:37]
