Ignite your imagination with these innovative and stylish approaches to a classic art. From handsome home accessories to luxurious garments, these leather, suede, and rawhide projects go beyond the simple belt. Whether you use traditional techniques such as tooling and branding or try new trends in stamping and stenciling, you'll find this melding of old and new irresistible. Here are all the basics on the different leathers and their characteristics; the required tools; cutting and punching holes or slits; assembly; and dying, staining, and painting the material. But, you'll long to get to the unique and splendid projects--the table runner with contrasting leathers and shapes, softened by delicate painted flowers and adorned with fringe and carved bone beads; the shade for a sconce or chandelier that sheds soft light through fabric designs; a sophisticated gold-embellished desk set; a tooled frame with a richly patterned surface; and many, many more.

OK book the few designs i was interested in had quirky mistakes in some of the instructions. For example the enlargement ratio was incorrect for one pattern but luckily they gave dimensions in the instructions. Also the quantities were off saying i needed 2 of each pattern when you needed 1 of one and 4 of the other.
