Default 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.20140224_150311.jpg
