I made another leather bound Coptic book this one was for a swap. The receiver likes Peacocks so I cut different color leather and glued them together (with fabric glue) and then added it to the cover. I chose the black leather cord to bring out the blue even or with its sharp contrast. This is the first time I have tried to make a peacock feather and they are harder then I would have thought.

I love the vibrancy of this (and the fact that it's suede of course!)

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
