Dinosaur Leather

I recently found a great leather jacket that I thought was very post apocalyptic / steampunk in style. But being me and enjoying the creation of a project as much as the finished article and not able to afford the £1300+ they wanted for it I bought myself some huge pieces of leather (114 sq ft for £164 bargain). I may now have a little more than I needed for this project alone, so have come up with a list of things that I think I can get out of these 2 huge hides;

  • Steampunk Jacket
  • Wallet
  • Goggles (part of)
  • Case for iPhone
  • Case of Adam Tablet

I am sure there will be other things that I will add to the list as I think of them and I think I will have more than enough leather to do all of these and possibly more. Next thing on my list to get is a sewing machine so I can do a good job on the jacket then I need to find a suitable base pattern to make my jacket from. If I can find a large enough space to lay these hides out flat I shall take a picture but for now I have them rolled up and in the hallway the only place we have that’s long enough to lay them down without bending them.
