Oh wow - they look fantastic!  I think I want some in my size. Do you want to do a tute?

Did you use real leather/suede?  If so, how hard was it to get the needle through it? Did you have to use a special needle or an awl?

It looks like a simple pattern, did it go together easily?

Do they have a lining, or does the material come with a fuzzy side.  If so what is it called, where did you buy it and was it expensive?

Nice job, thanks for sharing.

Thanks Smiley I bought the pattern here: preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'www.ithinksewdotcom.etsy.com') but I don't think she has an adult size though.

I found an old fake suede jacket at a second-hand store. I tried some leather and it was too hard to hand sew.

The pattern is rather simple and I didn't use a lining, but there is an option to add one with the pattern. The material already had the fuzzy side Smiley
