      Yes, but I wouldn't want to use those for embroidery, lest I snag and cut the embroidery thread. Sinew and waxed linen for sewing leather is sterner stuff.

      >What about chamois leather?  I had the unexpected pleasure of handling some 2 months ago, and it was amazingly soft.  I can't sew to save my life, my embroidery makes cats laugh (and I have the pics to prove it), but I could embroider on it.  I'd still use an awl, though.  For that matter, I'd use a designated embroiderer....
