Stretchy leather around edges of hides

Recommended Posts

Hi there, newbie question! Some sections of leather I get are really stretchy around the edges. If I give them a gentle pull they lose shape and don't go back. Am I right in thinking this stuff is a bit useless for something like wallets? What is it useful for..?! I have a good quality 3.5oz pull up double horse front but it seems really stretchy and I'm quite far in from the edge now...  With some shoulders I've bought it's hardly an issue at all.

Thanks for any tips

The edges are from the belly of "whichever animal" the hide belonged to when it was alive..The belly region is always more stretchy ( including on us )..You can use it for things that can be stretchy like coin purses ( the "sac" sort with a drawstring ) ..lots of things.
