I just finished some family gifts from leather (“Designer Small Skins”) I recently got on sale from Tandy Leather. They give an estimated size of 1-3 oz. I really like the finish on it. The design is one purchased from the Glowforge catalog—3-pocket Executive Card wallet (don’t worry, I got the unlimited prints version).
Before stitching I pressed the fronts (slightly dampened) with custom monogram stamps made of acrylic, with clamps, for about an hour. Then saddle-stitched the wallets. By the way, if I ever want to try stitching four layers of leather together again I hope somebody smacks me up the side of the head.
