This is my first to laser cut leather. I made a protective mobile case made out of a thin, soft leather in petrol blue.
I designed the pattern in OpenSCAD and made it able to adapt to different phone sizes. A dxf for my phone (Sony Xperia Z3) is available as well.
Get some material that fits your style. I used a soft 1.2mm thick leather.
If you don't have a Xperia Z3 you need to load the scad file in OpenScad and change the parameters 'mobile_thickness', 'mobile_height' and
'mobile_width' to you phone size.
You need to modify the 'added_height_margin' and 'added_width_margin' as well to fit you type of corners. The parameters in the file are for very round corners (Xperia Z3). Add a bit more for sharp corners like iPhone 5.
After cutting you need to sew the parts together. Start at the bottom and go in a simple wave pattern though the holes up and down again. Don't pull to hard or you will get bumps.
