I keep quilting leather animals and can't decide which is my favorite....right now it is this giraffe. haha
The pattern.... it was in 3 pieces...3 pages...
came from Fur, Fin and Feathers by Georgia Feazle, Vol III, 1978 Picture in book was this...
Here it is quilted. it is 15.5" x 26.5" It is on a piece of cow hide
Found out you can not use leather dyes on black leather....it doesn't show up. so, i searched the cabinet and tried different markers and colored pencils and decided i liked these crayons the best.
Here it is all painted and finished.
And the back. I shamelessly used up all bobbins that had thread in them from previous projects. haha Backing was piece from the stash
I used several different threads
I might need a little leather break for a bit until I decide which animal I want to tackle next. I have a request from a friend for a wolf or a frog and don't have a pattern for either.
