Sewing with leather

Ever since I have my sewing machine I've been wanting to try to sew with leather. When I got hold of a leather sample for furniture upholstery, I finally did. After 31 years :)

It was a little piece just enough for this pencil pouch. In stead of using pins I glued, let it dry and then sewed it together. It worked out well and I'm really proud and fond of it.

With the remains I cut and glued a little bracelet with a popper button. Too small for me unfortunately - I love the color.

My daughter loves it. It's sturdy and soft at the same time and looking good.
