Leather Hides

Hi Guys,

My wife has given me a task in making her a handbag over lockdown (i'm not an expert) I'm on furlough and she's working through. Has anyone created any similar products? What is the best shop to get premium leather?

RE:Leather Hides

Hi there 

I have been on The Craft blog with Trimcraft for a good few years now making cards and also lot’s of other crafts through the years. Leather is great to work with i found that you can pick up some great pieces of leather garments from charity shops that you can make lots of things with ( handbags) hats etc. Hope that this is helpful Happy Crafting Irene x

If you want to feel it first the most geographically widespread store in the US is Tandy. Google to see if there is one in your area. That way you can get your hands on the stuff and get a feel for it before you buy.

Also, you can check out Springfield Leather and The Hide Shop
