Amongst my many leather talents, I can also make various leather goods from Cane Toad leather.
I'll attach some pics from my photo page.
I do get a lot of pre-made Cane Toad leather goods like bags, wallets etc. from a taxidermist, but I can also obtain the skins as well to make a lot of my own Cane toad leather goods. The skins can come in a variety of colours.
They are very easy to work with, and , depending on the project, some parts of the skins can be sewn using a domestic machine (with a leather needle), however, because the Cane Toad secretes a toxin from glands near the head, that part is often quite thick & tough ( after tanning) and care needs to be taken not to break a needle when sewing that part.
It does take a little time to trim and arrange the skins,( if making large items) and to sort them as each skin has a *different texture ( *after tanning ,also, males & females have different textures), so a project may take longer than usual to make, but the end result is worth it.
When I make anything from cane toad skins ,I just trim the daggy bits off, I then glue each piece into place and then sew, a bit like putting a jigsaw puzzle together.
Most of the items in the pics are pre-made, but some of my own items are, stubby holders, barrettes, BIC lighter cases, books covers, tobacco pouches and asstd. small items.
