A few posts ago, I shared my cute little slouch leather bag and today, I have a little project I have been wanting to do ever since I read WiseCraft by Blair Stocker. The leather I am using is courtesy of the Leather Hide Store, where remnants from upholstery (couches, chairs, pillows, etc.) are sold to crafters like me. Instead of wasting the cutting room floor pieces, Leather Hide Store is embracing the use of remnants for beautiful, luxurious little crafts. Each paperweight I made (I crafted 4!) used a slightly different technique as I played around with the concept. I encourage you to start with one of my techniques and branch out to make your leather rocks your own unique creation!
Rock #1 - The Triangle
