Clip in Place

Layer the leather and fabric pieces on top of one another, right sides facing out. Place clips in the center to hold the pieces together. Fold the outer edges in approximately 1 1/2 inches and clip those as well. Tip: Use clips instead of pins to avoid punching holes in the leather. You may want to experiment with the right tools for the textiles that you use.
