Does anyone sew with leather? I've gotten in over my head...
I decided to make an ipad case (simple, rectangular with a small strap to close) out of leather. I am using a fairly thin, flexible leather and I have a button stud as a closure. The problem is that the hardware will scratch the ipad if I don't cover it somehow from the inside. Because I intended to sew the leather wrong sides together and just trim the edges, I can't figure out how to attach a lining. I don't think the leather will "turn" the same way fabric does.
The only think I can think of is to glue the lining fabric to the leather. My concern is that glue or adhesive will leave marks on the outside of the leather. I.e. if I use a swirly application of glue, will the swirls show?
Ugh. Anyway, I've procrastinated as usual, and now have to finish this little project by Monday night. :o
Any ideas would be appreciated.
