I have a bin of leather scraps, odds and ends that I never know what to do with and loathe to simply throwaway. My hoader tendency made me particularly impressed by what artist Gabriel Dishaw was doing with old LV bags. I really like his ingenious use of materials and combination of patterns he is using to make the likeness of his subjects. And they’re not limited to Star Wars icons, he’s also done shoes, a bust of Optimus Prime and even Iron Man.
After making a large project, I tend to make progressively smaller and smaller projects with the leftovers and had never thought to combine my pieces to make something more creative. I’m eyeing that scrap bin now to see what new I ideas I can come up with.
