Leather is too thick to sew with a normal sewingmachine. This is an easy and handsome technique to work with leather without having to sew it. you use crochet instead!

You'll need a basic knowledge of crocheting.

Let's see how it's done!

Step 1: What You Need

You'll need:

-a piece of leather (look for a shop on the internet and see if they sell leftovers. I've bought this piece at www.boomsma.nl)
-a socket punch
-a crochet needle (0,3)
-yarn (I used a smooth cotton)
-pattern paper
I love how that looks with the crocheted edge!
I'm pretty pleased with it myself :) thanks!
