This thing is over eight feet tall now and if you look to the upper right corner, you can see one of the birds perched on a fruit... It is bigger than he is.
It paid off! The jacket on the left is rawhide. The one on the right is polished on one side and soft suede on the other. I got both of these for about $10.00!
Sometimes it pays to be patient and wait a while.
I have enough leather for minis and jewelry(mostly jewelry) to last me another ten years.
After Goodwill, I stopped at Dollar Tree. They had these little plant pots, 12 for a dollar. They can be cut down some with an Exacto knife or scissors. If we paint them, they will look like terracotta or stone. I have a few real plants to repot as soon as the conservatory is finished.
They come two to a package and the more protection, the better.
I am going back to cutting up leather now.
See you tomorrow.
