If you caught my leather baby shoe pattern release last Friday, and thought, “Where in the world am I going to buy genuine leather?”
Today, I’ve got you covered.
The Leather Hide Store is generously giving away $50 to their site!
Which makes like…50+ baby shoes! If you are wanting to make them to sell (which I allow on a home based business level with the purchase of my pattern), that’s a worthwhile investment. Plus, they have about 25-30 different colors and varieties of leather to choose from. You can see them all HERE.
If you’re like me though, and want to leather all the things, :)…I’ve got more leather projects in the works. You can also check out the great round up of leather tutorials I shared HERE.
Can you imagine all the things you can do with a whole hide? It makes me giddy. :)
At first, I planned to make another pair of Natty Janes, but by the time I was done, I had made these little fellas instead.
I still need to rework things. Laces are kind of impractical for babies. The shape needs some work…stuff like that. It was fun to play around with though.
I have to mention that the leather is brand spanking new, so it is a little on the stiff side.
After taking these pictures, I rubbed and stretched the leather between my hands and it softened up pretty well. So, I recommend distressing it a bit before using it, especially if you are making something that needs flexibility, like baby shoes.
Alrighty…are you ready to win your hide from the Leather Hide Store?
