So my friend Deb gave me a great present, oodles of leather samples for upholstery. I have an array of colors and textures. Free stuff always inspires me to try different things and when I buy expensive fabric I try and conserve it a little more. So I jumped into the leather samples and found a nice big piece and made a little pouch. It was fun and my old sewing machine didn't die - that's a good thing. Now I just have to think up different projects to use up the rest of the leather.
