So I would like to try my hand at making a possibles bag  and a few other items.
No experience at all with leather working.
First is where to get some leather ?
I have looked a bit and it is very expensive, seems it would cost me more for just the leather alone to make a bag than to buy them already made.
I live close to a Tandy's, but again super expensive.

Also what type of leather and weight for a possibles bag.

I have some lamb hides that I could sell cheap. $5ea a hide + shipping. They are butter soft and 2oz weight. I made a bag out of one hide along with some ball bags and its a great leather. 4 to 6 sq ft.
