I really enjoyed making this kangaroo leather wallet and the final product looks amazing! Matt guided us well through the process and gave us interesting insights into the production of leather, the different types and the tools to use. Quite a few pieces of scrap leather from his cut-off bag landed in my purse and are hopefully to be crafted into leather earrings, bracelets, etc.
