I made this bag to give to my friend. We have been friends for a very long time and she does and has done so many thoughtful things for me that I figured it was time I made her something special. I bought this deerskin piece and made it into a bag.

Nice job!! I have never embroidered on leather. Any special tips?

Keep the designs simpler although I see Letvia has done more complex ones. Don't use a leather needle for the embroidery as it cuts the leather and your design will fall out. I used a size 14 regular needle so there is less friction on the thread with the larger hole. An embroidery needle would also work in a size 14. A good weight stabalizer is also recommended.
