This tutorial from Matt Pierce for A Continuous Lean walks you through the process of using stiff leather to create a stylish and protective case for small items and kits. Here, Matt designs his for a compass and some other wayfinding goodies, but you could scale and adapt the project to fit your needs.

A great peek into what goes into high-quality leather craft, and a perfect introduction for getting started yourself.
