The leather sweater project is progressing. Usually I stew about things like this for a while and let ideas percolate before I make too many major decisions. I decided to deconstruct the garment first, then determine how the pieces might be used. The two front pieces and the back yolk yielded the most sizable pieces of leather. I think I will leave the lacing intact on the front pieces and use them for the main portion of the journal. The knit sleeves and back and the lining pieces may find their way in yet too. The next step will be to look through my papers and see what I have that might suit this project.
