Can you put interfacing on leather? I want to make a cover for my Kindle, and got to wondering. I'm planning on a book cover to go over the Amazon cover that it came with, and the leather I have came from an old leather trench coat-pretty, but limp.

If so, is it better to use the regular kind or the fleece stuff? If not, any suggestions for adding some stiffness without adding bulk?

Are you going to have a lining? Maybe it would be easier to interface the lining material?

I wasn't planning on it-the way it'll fit over the cover, no one would see it. But you're right, interfacing the lining might be easier.
