What is so fascinating about leather? Is it the smell? Is it the texture? Why do people want to make things out of leather? Is it because those things are useful? Pretty? Durable? Something no-one else makes? There are a lot of good reasons for taking up the art of leathercraft!
There are so many things you can make out of leather, things that you wouldn't think that you could. Sure, people make wallets, handbags and belts all the time! But have you ever made a mug? A weaver style bag? No? Well, why not? Because theres not that many leather patterns out there for that sort of thing. Theyre just not that readily available.
So since theres not that many patterns available for things that arent belts or wallets or handbags...we decided to make our own patterns and share them with everyone!
You'll be pleased by the ease and simplicity of our patterns. In fact, they're so darn easy, that a beginner can make something so incredible, so awesome, that youll think theyve being doing leathercraft for years! And even a pro will enjoy the end results!
All of our leather patterns are drawn using an old fashioned drafting machine. We DO NOT use a fancy computer CAD program to draw any of our patterns. So all of our patterns are created the old fashioned way, by hand, right in keeping with the tools used to create them!
But we do use a computer to combine them in a downloadable file, complete with printing instructions to make your leather pattern pieces print out just right on a standard printer!
Every leather pattern that we create has been tested thoroughly. We make sure all patterns are easily assembled using our instructions. And once the examples have been made, we take pictures and include them in every pattern we make! If there is something that is difficult to explain with words, we add a pictorial instruction guide to lend you a helping hand and keep you on the right track.
Our approach to leather is easy to remember. Keep it simple, keep it short and above all, HAVE FUN! If youre not having fun, then whats the point?
