I want to purchase some "leather" fabric to make bookmarks for my grandchildren. I want to be able to do decorative stitching and embroider their names on them. What type of leather fabric is best? What thread should I use? What needle should I use. I will be either sewing "In the Hoop" on my embroidery machine or sewing both on regular sewing machine (have several to choose from...LOL) and embroidery machine.
Also does anyone know of a pattern or site with a tutorial? I can wing it but right now my senior moments are catching up with me!!
