Step 1: Cut the Leather

I cut the paper for the shape at first, and then cut the same shape of leather, then cut the corners round. The color of leather is original now.

Step 2: Add the Lining

This lining is made by cork, and the thick is about 0.5mm, cut the same shape of the biggest leather piece then glue on it.

I use alcohol dye on the leather. use a small sponge dyed 3 or 4 times. after one night drying, covered a tan coat.
