What materials did you use? It is so warm this winter in CA I can't wear my leather jacket. This is a poly faux pas that is really light weight.

I agree with most of the comments posted. I was undecided on this course until I saw your project. I Love the fabric and how you've made it look so up to date. Can you please tell me where you purchased fabric was it online by any chance? I'm looking online and haven't had much luck finding anything that looks distressed. I'm searching for Faux Soft Skin Leather, is this correct? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I got this fabric at Hancocks. I see they have something on line like it but i think it's decorator material and much thicker. I see that Fabric Mart has a lot of fake suede that would be a good possibility.
