Over the years I've purchased what's called a "Farmers Bundle" consisting of miscellaneous strips and pieces of various leathers in color, finish and thicknesses etc. Basically it's a bag of scraps but it's turned out well for me for use on my canes and walking sticks. I used to get them at the local hardware store but of course they discontinued it. I did find the bundle again however at Hobby Lobby but at a higher price but still affordable. I'm wondering if any other crafters here use the leather bundle to accentuate the sticks.
