    I've bought two large batches for dress over the space of the past 5 years. And an odd one every now and again for various projects.

    The quality has been all over the map. Some were nice and soft, beaded the best of any non brain-tan I've used. Then some had sections so hard, I could have used them for mocc soles. When I get a hard or ugly one, I send it back.

    Try rubbing over the water marks with the edge of a clean soup can lid. You can sometimes work the loft back into the hide.

      Thank you for the advice. It seems as though I got a hard one, but it is already cut, so huge leather needles solved the problem. At the bottom, where it was long, I cut it out and used it for soles

        Ladies (and guys), I need your help. I have a pair of light tan elk leather cowboy boots. Their great. Except I'm afraid to wear them because I can't find out how to care for them. I've been to three western stores, including the one I bought them from, and each one has said the same thing. I asked...

        Cloth Diapers
        by wyo_rose
        My baby grandson needs to start using cloth diapers due to some wicked heat/diaper rash.

        They don't sell them in any stores locally, so I'm ordering online. They're all so different nowadays from when my kids were wearing them.

        Anybody have good results with the all-in-one...

        Buckskin designs
        by cherokeemom06
        I have a couple of cloth dresses and have finally decided to put the time, effort and money into my first buckskin dress. I tried to buy one (don't yell at me, I have two small kids and finding time to cut all that fringe was a bit daunting! ) but everytime I almost made a deal with someone,...
