I received this leather skin earlier this past week. This is a beautiful leather piece and the color red is on the warm side which I prefer. Never sewn with leather. This will be a new challenge. I wish now I had purchased two skins.

I ordered this through Fabric and Notions Yahoo Group.

  1. It's a beautuful shade of red, Linda! Have you decided on what to make with this piece? I've never sewn leather too, but I have a vintage book that I've purchased recently from Ebay that addresses leather sewing techniques.

  2. Mmmm! I love the red leather!!! I have a red leather piece and am going too make a purse out of it. Please let us know what you plan on doing with it. Did you get any tips for sewing leather? On our excursion to Global Leathers during PR Weekend, the owner said to use cotton thread (think it was 3-ply?), not poly. Other than that I'm looking in my Fabric Savvy. I'm hoping Kenneth King can give me some tips when I take his handbag class too.
