Yum! I'm the proud new owner of some delicious red leather. This is going to become the Obi belt from the June issue. I traced out the pattern but I'll need to take several inches out of the waist. See this review from PatternReview.com. I don't really know anything about leather so I'll have to do some research on cutting and sewing it.
I'm sort of stalled on the kid raincoat. I'll explain more later. Right now I have to take my son for a teeth cleaning.
