I have bought the brown imitation of leather a few months ago but got to it just now. I was thinking of making all sorts of stuff out of it, but then though to start with something small. So have a look at my handsewn brooch:
Each petal has three layers and they are embroidered with the pink beads. I finnished it with a pink polka dot button to give it more contrast.
Who knows, there might be more experiments like this in the near future :)
