But wait, you got that off of a suede jacket? Dang!
I didn't kill anything to get it, but no, that's not from a suede jacket... was just saying that is a source for inexpensive leather. What is pictured is black Elk hide which I use for making moccasins and mukluks (lined winter boots) for myself. Pretty durable stuff and fairly easy to work with. Usually I use brown elk hide for the mocs, but what I had on hand was black, so used that since it went with the bike. Jacket suede would be thinner and easier to work with.
