Tandy Leather Factory

I had a thought for a leather DIY project the other day and since I recycled the rest of my leather skirt to make my DIY over-the-knee boot spats, I headed to a little local leather shop in North Hollywood called Tandy Leather Factory.

Tandy Leather Shop 1


They have quite a large selection of leather for such a little shop including both untreated raw leather sides {above} and pre-tanned and treated leathers and suede sides {below}.

Pre-cut leather belt strips …some with stamped floral carving, some raw, some tanned/dyed/treated and a variety of belt buckles to match.

Stones, rivets, grommets, conchos, studs, you name it, they have it including tools for setting them all.

    Hm. In theory it would be really simple to make a leather t-shirt. (Currently lemming one after reading Susie Bubble’s blog. You’d have to line it in silk, I suppose…)

    Maegan!! WOW!! such an amazing, detailed job showing this awesome place! Thank you so much! I am really looking forward to the DIY! I love all your DIYS {every single one}….and I just love it so much when you throw in some leather ones. You are so incredibly knowledgeable, talented, and have so many years of experience working with leather… you deserve leather creations…except this time around … with YOUR name on it {how it should be}!! {I read the latest interview, you gave, a few days ago…thats what I’m referring to ;) }

    Thanks for sharing this! I’ve been looking for a place that sells leather. All my local fabric shops just sell crappy vinyl and it’s too hard for me to buy online because I like to feel it before I purchase it. Hopefully, I’ll be able to make it up there this week.

    Aw, I thought you only wore vintage fur. I saw this awful video of a rabbit slaughterhouse and I still haven’t been able to get the rabbits’ shrieks out of my mind.

    I used to LOVE going to Tandy with my Dad as a kid. We did all kinds of leather work projects. I still have the belt he made me and a few other treasures.

    Can’t wait to see your DIY!

    So what did you end up making with your purchases? I have a bad of leather ends that I picked up at my local leather shop. So I was hoping for some inspiration.
