    I make these out of scraps from my leather straps so there is no waste. Designs will vary a little bit so I can use the pieces I have. Genuine leather 5-6 oz. They might have marks or brands and I might have to splice pieces together but they will all be functional and awesome!

    This book cover is one long piece of leather (sometimes pieced together from shorter pieces with rivets, depending on what scraps are available,) folded and held together with a free moving belt, through loops. This is what allows it to be adjusted for different sized books.
    The belt loop on the back fits belts up to 3 inches wide.

    About 6.25 inches tall without the loop.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sizing details

Please carefully read the listing description for instructions on proper measuring- especially for suspenders.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Yes I giftwrap- $4.00 I will wrap with professional grade paper- either blue or green, and add a handwritten note with your message. (tell me in the comments what you want it to say)

Custom and personalized orders

I can customize many of my items- convo me with your idea!

How can I get my order faster?

Order my "Rush Order" listing to expedite your items. The rush order moves yours to the front of the queue to get made next. (Without a Rush, orders get made in the order they were received, regardless of shipping choice.) You can put this on the same order as your other items.
Also, choosing "priority shipping" at checkout will speed up your delivery.

Suspender returns?

Since suspenders are custom made to your color and size choices, I will accept exchanges if the sizing isn’t right. You are responsible for shipping costs but I will happily make you a different size. Please measure using my instructions on the listing.

LOST IN THE MAIL/put the wrong address on package.

I am unfortunately not responsible for items that I have made and shipped and that the post office has lost. Contact me for a 50% refund - we both lose when a package goes missing. It doesn't happen often but now and then it will happen.
If you entered the wrong address, there is nothing I can do for you, sorry. I suggest writing a letter to the current occupant of the address and asking them to forward your package.

    Soft leather, very comfortable. Would recommend

    Such a cool book holster! cant wait to wear it at my next ren fair!

    I gave this to my fourteen-year-old as their middle school graduation present and they were ECSTATIC. Wore it to school (weird district, school after graduation...) and their peers loved it too. Wonderful product, quality & appearance just as anticipated. Will be much loved.
