Leather...leather and more leather


My dear brother in law asked if I wanted some leather samples he no longer needs from his furniture store...of course I do, I said.

I don't really have any great ideas but I must be able to use these somehow. They are all different colors and all are 17 inches square and I think I must have about 200 samples.
Purses, wallets, slipper bottoms, patches....
Any ideas? Anyone? Patterns.....

Thanks JJ, love the leather, now I just have to get busy with it.

I have no ideas for you, but can't wait to see what you come up with.

I used to make vintage type teddy bears and used leather for the 4 paw pads, noses, inner ears, etc. Those would be wonderful!
