YTBB - Buckskin Basics. Buckskin Basics & Workbook; 54 Pages. 'Buckskin Basics & Workbook' - the manual for sewing/designing buckskin clothing. This is the basic, how-to book! First published in 1997 as an aid for teaching buckskining classes, it contains everything a student would have gotten in approximately ten classes–and then some. It is soft cover, 54 pages and size is 8 1/2” by 11”. Concepts of the book: Rule # 1-"This is supposed to be fun, if it's not, you’re probably doing something wrong” Rule # 3-"You can fix it – no matter what!” The book contains some leather identification, introduction to the cutting, stitching and to the tools for working deer and elk hide, as well as the handling and properties of those others. It also contains instructions for a simple shirt and how to convert a commercial pants pattern. The idea being, with this book and one of our Moccasin Patterns, anybody can dress themselves in a good starter suit of buckskins! In the back of the book is a workbook section: pages that can be copied to allow a novice to design their own next project – and there are many sketches included.
