Although goat and calf hides make nice decor pieces, there is so much more that you can do with them.
- Costumes – hide Shrek vest, or Tarzan loincloth
- Shoes, just buy a pair of soles to sew the hide top onto
- Hide handbag or tote
- Recover a chair cushion with hide
- Patchwork table placemats and coasters
- Hide earrings
All you need is a bit of imagination. I’ve seen hair-on hide covered mirror and photo frames, table runner, lamp shades etc. All you need is some leather sewing tools and a bit of time and you can make some great stuff.
