    hello,
    Sorry I can't help you this time, the swatch obtained, I blagged the off cuts from a project, cost me a bar lunch for the excellent craftwork that was put into the pouch construction. I'll keep you in mind next time there's any leather going ok?
    Regards
    David

    hello,
    No problem I'd share the leather no problem. My mate she was working with such on another project & as there was some off cuts, why let it go to waste? As said I'll keep you in mind next time
    Regards

    The Identity Store do bags of off cuts for 15 depending on weight. http://www.theidentitystore.co.uk/

    Also try any upholsterers for scrap leather that has been stripped off prior to recovering, or keep an eye on your local recycling centre- leather sofas or cushions are often seen + can be blagged.

    Charity shops often have leather handbags or leather jackets which can be utilised for projects.

    Theres usually plenty of leather in these items for small projects like pouches, phone covers etc.

    No prob.
    Old pre used leather has a feel and patina which can really make something feel + look special.
