Using up all that scrap latigo leather isn’t the easiest thing to do. I usually find that I have a lot of this left over the course of a 6 month period or so. So in order to stay ahead of my scrap piles of latigo leather, I try to cut up some lace occasionally. This works to consume some of the scrap leather as well as saving me time when I do need lace leather for a project.
You can use the same process for chap leather and other softer type of leathers that might make good lace leather in your shop.
