The Leather Element: Pattern Materials for Leather

Miriam Schlabach |

What makes a great pattern material? This is a great question and in this week’s episode of “The Leather Element” Chuck shows how plastic pattern sheeting makes a great pattern and it’s very durable. We’ll also go over tracing film and transferring a design onto your leather, including mirror images and left and right pieces for something like armor. We can also combine the two pieces to create a crosshatch design. We hope this answers some questions and gives you some ideas for your own projects!
