    not quite quilting, but?

    I downloaded thhe pattern for a grab bag from allpeoplequilt.com, and instead of using fabric I recycled an old leather jkt and some silk for the lining that I had laying around, its quick and easy, I'm doubg it in white leather from a skirt I've had lying around since either the 80's or the 90's and a half yard of a bright fuchsia moda fabric, will post that one when finished, really quick and easy to make.Name:  20140224_150311.jpg

    Lovely.
    I go to yard sales for old leather coats. a lot of leather in those things. Great recycling.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very durable and strong looking! Is it hard to sew thru leather though?
    take plenty of pic of family & friends, keep tabs on loved ones but make time for yourself !
