Ready to cut leather

In my shop, this is how I create all of the pattern pieces for an inlaid design. A typical boot top is four panels–two fronts and two backs. Assuming the design is symmetrical, each design element is repeated either four or eight times. Cutting a pattern for each piece ensures that I can repeat it accurately.
