Knowing absolutely nothing about leather, I dove into this book wondering if this could THE resource I could use when considering a leather project. It is! The advice is for someone like myself - tips on how to begin a leather project to keep discouragement at bay, including the weight and type of leather to choose, and the wisdom of buying a leather-making kit and much more....an invaluable guide to working with leather!

This is a short introduction to leather-working. After purchasing it, I found that simply watching YouTube videos and reading free information gave me much more information than this ebook. I was hoping for more illustration. You will be disappointed if you are any degree of visual learner.

The only upside to this is possibly taking it with me to a leathercraft store (assuming I remember my kindle).

Summary: if you already have an introductory leatherworking book, or are comfortable perusing the internet, skip this book.

This hobby has fascinated me since I was in the Scouts, years ago. But I'm a newbie in working with leather. This book gave me some great ideas, with step by step instruction. It really covers the whole process from buying leather to tooling, stitching and making projects. I'm looking forward to putting this teaching to work. I'm glad I found this to help me out.

This book does not explain how to work with leather. It gives basic descriptions of some techniques but does not explain how to perform them. For example, Decorative stitching: It says "decorative stitching may be added." That's it! It doesn't tell you how or describe any steps or techniques.

I started working with leather years ago in elementary school. I ordered this book more to see the projects offered, which are great and easy to do, and as a bonus, with well written directions!
It was interesting to read the instructions on how to score your design with a craft knife - I've always used a leather knife. Not sure I would be able to use a craft knife that way either. I think a diagram of the layers of the skin of the leather would have helped the description of what you try to do when scoring the design on the top of the leather. Just my opinion though.
Would I suggest this book to others? Wholeheartedly!

Disappointed with the contents, google and youtube will give you more information on how to work leather than this book. Save your $ 4.99

Good enough for the price paid. Mostly very old, outdated content which is fine in some productive, creative crafts. Not a bad investment, and one more thing for my leather library.

I've got a lot of leather laying around and I haven't done much with it because I have found it a little hard to work with. This book is easy to understand and easy to read and has made "working with leather" much easier ... in fact I don't have much lying around any more and am looking for some resources for some more leather.

Good written publication, easy to understand, very informative.
