Leather is a wonderful material for clothing and bags; it's luxurious to the touch and will outlast cloth. This is the book for sewers who have always wanted to sew with leather and suede but were afraid to try...until now. Tools, techniques, and stitches are clearly described and illustrated. Great beginner projects include a classic hobo bag, an unlined vest, and a cap. Then go on to plan a leather garment from design and pattern adjustment to cutting, sewing, and lining. Once you've mastered these, learn the details of embellishment techniques to make any garment a unique item.
