I recently had the chance to work with a material that I’m not very familiar with - leather. My favorite fabric shop, Grey’s Fabric and Notions, recently got in some beautiful pieces, some large and some small scraps that are perfect for fashioning into accessories. I had to try my hand at leather working right away so I dove in with some simple accessories inspired tutorials I found at Oh The Lovely Things and Freshly Given.
On the left are a pair of quirky earrings and the right is a wrist cuff. I really like the look of the cuff when it’s on:
I loved working with the leather, it’s nice not to worry about finishing edges! I’d love to try making a small wallet next - I can just imagine the decorative topstitching now!
