    Default What to do with leather off cuts

    I’d appreciate some ideas of what I can do with bits of leather hides left over after re-doing our lounge suite.

    Unfortunately there aren’t big pieces and they’re all pretty much odd shaped. It would be a waste to throw it away.

    Eish - I think it was maybe mod around the 70’s rather? I love leather but this makes my eyes hurt

    They’re all the same colour and rather thick. I also thought of stitching them together to replace upholstery on my breakfast nook chairs but for that it would’ve had to be different colours. Also, because it’s so thick it will have to be a hand sewn job. Sewing machine bobbin won’t last long

    I like the idea of a camping utensil holder. Just don’t know how to sew them together as the leather is quite thick.
