My mom used to work at "Creative Leather".  If you don't know what that is, it's basically a furniture store featuring really nice leather sofas, chairs, ect.  She brought home "samples" of leather for me.  It's really nice, soft and such and couldn't work for something very stable, more as a fabric.  Tough to sew by hand, and I dont really want to ruin my machine.  The pieces all vary, but they are usually like two feet by one, or really small like 6 inches by 6 inches.

thanks in advance.

Ohhh I want some, lol. But really your possibilities are endless. You could make some moccasins or you could bind a special notebook or regular book.

Make cuffs and chokers, cut strips of it and then little shapes out of other colours and glue them on, etc. Like you could make little flowers or ice creams or something! Man I wish I had lots of leather, it's so handy for accessories.

Buy a leather stamping kit!  Very fun, theraputic and easy results!  I had one by Tandy.  You just wet the leather, then stamp designs in.

I cut strips 3/4" wide out of red, tan, and black leather. Then I wove them together alternating colors and used that to cover the seat of an old bar stool. First i put foam padding on with spray glue. Then I used the spray glue for the leather too, and it looks great.

The foam I had, had material bonded to one side, (It was actually headliner material for cars)  but you could just glue any material in between the foam and leather.
