LeatherWorks is a cool craft book that teaches you how to make 20 simple yet stylish leather projects in your own living room, from home to fashion accessories. The projects are presented in a contemporary lifestyle setting - most are made from scratch, with one or two using leather to upcycle old furniture. Examples include: a wallet, a backpack/satchel, a wall mirror, a storage box, a wash bag, a glasses case, a wastepaper basket, a tote handbag, a woven bench, wall tiles and a moulded bowl.
Alongside each project, basic techniques are also taught through dedicated labs such as Hand-stitching, Weaving, Riveting, Tooling and Lacing.
