i'm missing something :)

For some reason I can't seem to find parts 1-3 of the leather rose tutorial? Could you please point me in the right direction? Thanks so much. :)

Thank you so very much. I think a trip to the store is now in order. :)

You're very welcome.

A few other examples of my leather work are on my magpiesnest page, along with earrings and such.

If you make leather lacing, I made a video to demonstrate the use of TLF's lacemaker. It's on yutube.

Hi, I am new to working with leather so I have a quick question. What is the best leather to use? Do I have to use tooling leather or can I use just regular scraps? If I can use regular scraps should they be thick or thin or does it matter? Your tutorial is a great help, thank you for posting!
Thanks for the help!

Vegetable tanned leather is best to use for wet forming, which is what you are doing when you make the leather rose.

Tooling leather is vegetable tanned leather.

I make tiny versions of the roses for earrings from very thin and flexible chrome tanned garment leather, usually pig, but that requires that I use something to "starch" the tiny roses so they keep their shape.

Feel free to experiment with what you have, and let me know how it works.
