I am in the process of creating a portfolio website for myself for some of the work that I have done.  I want to have the header be a leather texture.  I want to create the texture in photoshop.  I have a picture that i want it to look like. I used gradients and one filter but I stuck.  I want to reproduce the cracks in the leather, and I can't seem to find the best way to do it.  Any ideas?

I looked at that question, but I was wondering if anyone has actually created one.  I have come close but it still looks fake.

I suspect that's why many of the suggestions focused on starting with a real sample, and altering it to fit your needs, rather than starting from scratch.

Ok I see, i was playing last night and created something that I really like, so i think that is what i am going to use but I want to put stiching on the corners.  Should I just use a broken line box and use layer styles, or is there an eayer way?
