Nature has all kinds of things that you can get leather carving ideas from in this case I found a small oak leaf that fits perfectly on this leather coaster for this leather carving tutorial.

I use a small C.S. Osborne saddlers awl to trace around the oak leaf.

The leather I am using is a 3 3/4″ circle that is 10/12 oz. leather and perfect for practicing carving leather designs and can be used for a coffee coaster to set your coffee cup on it.

After I cut the oak leaf into the leather I let the leather dry out a little bit then beveled around the leaf with a Craftool B802 beveler that I got from Tandy Leather. https://youtu.be/T2E8MRO_WjE
