On my table to begin work are a few more custom travel journals and this salmon pink leather sweater/jacket. A friend of a friend received this as a keepsake when her aunt recently passed away. The style and colour are too outdated for her to wear the garment. So rather than have it hide in a closet, my friend suggested that I could use the leather to make a journal which would be useful, and remember her aunt each time she used it.
I intend to make something along the lines of my fabric softcover journals, but aside from that I don't have a firm plan. If anyone has any tips on deconstructing leather garments or using repurposed leather, I would be most appreciative.
