Welcome to 3rd Life Leather - Sew Sustainably!

Hi! I'm Stephanie! 3rd Life Leather is where I create sewing patterns and accessories for people who love to sew, but are conscious of the amount of waste their sewing can create.

My sewing patterns are specifically designed to be used with leather primarily recycled from coats and jackets. So that your lovely creations don't end up causing further damage to our planet.

By reusing and upcycling leather we honor the first life of the leather - that of the animal; the second life of the leather the garment that the original designer created; and

Your lovely creation will be the third life of the leather.
