Although intended for a young audience, this book serves as an excellent guide for anyone interested in making useful things out of leather. Filled with tips and information, it helps beginners develop essential techniques of the craft through a series of skill-building projects. It starts with an overview, from the origins of leatherwork to the tanning process, and includes a chart listing characteristics and uses of various leathers to help select the right type for any project.

It goes on to cover tools and safety, and demonstrates techniques for layout, pattern making, cutting, stitching, lacing, riveting and finishing. Step-by-step instructions are given for eleven projects: a bookmark, a wrist band, a belt, a knife pouch, a keepsake box, a drawstring bag, moccasins, a book cover, a cell phone case, a wallet and a hatchet holster, each with a tools and materials list, a pattern and color photos.

Softcover, 8"x8", 2008.
