Let's Get Measuring!
A friendly journey into the world of leather thickness. Here's a handy guide to help you navigate the measurements with ease!
1. Embrace the Ounces and Millimeters When it comes to leather thickness, we use a magical unit called ounces. One ounce is like 0.4 mm of leather goodness! But here in Australia, we like to keep things simple, so we'll use millimeters because most folks are more familiar with the metric system. Cheers to making life easier!
2. A Bit of Mystery: The Millimeter Range Now, keep your eyes peeled! Some leathers might have a mm range listed - like 1.2 - 1.4 mm! Why? Well, because leather is like a natural wonder, it can have tiny variations across the hide. But no worries, these little shifts won't change the Leathercraft game!
3. Let's Craft with Joy In the fantastic world of leathercraft, a slight variation in thickness won't dampen your creative spirit. So, dear artisans, fear not! Embrace the uniqueness of leather, and let your creativity flow freely! Those subtle millimeter dances won't stop you from crafting wonders.

Now go forth, leather enthusiasts, and explore the wonder of leathercraft with a smile. The beauty of leather's tiny variations is all part of the delightful adventure! Happy crafting, and let your leather projects be filled with joy and imagination!
