Does anyone have any ideas for crafts that involve lacing that would end with a gift-worthy product in the end?

My son is autistic, and one of his therapists is leaving next month... W want to do something as a going away gift for her, and I thought something that he made would be nice.

He is good at (and also enjoys) lacing cards and the wooden lacing bead set he has... My original thought was to do a small leather project like a bag or pencil pouch with the seams laced together. Admittedly, though, I know nothing about leather or the kinds of adhesives that might be involved.

I know y'all are brilliantly creative (I've seen your work), so I am hoping someone may have more inspiration than me...

Help a girl out? Thanks!

Leather coin purse or key tag was my immediate thought, just from your title -- to my knowledge (though it has been a looooong time since I've done one of those), no adhesive required.

If you have a drill, you could buy an inexpensive wooden (or wood composite) picture frame and drill lacing holes.

That's a super idea... I would never have thought of that.

My original thought was the coin purse/ key ring, and maybe my first mistake was looking at kits rather than just googling projects... Sometimes I swear the pre-made kits make a project more complicated than it needs to be!
