Leather - Wiki Guide 9

2. Add Items to make Leather

In the crafting menu, you should see a crafting area that is made up of a 3×3 crafting grid. To make leather, place 4 rabbit hide in the 3×3 crafting grid.

When making leather, it is important that the rabbit hides are placed in the exact pattern as the image below. In the first row, there should be 1 rabbit hide in the first box and 1 rabbit hide in the second box. In the second row, there should be 1 rabbit hide in the first box and 1 rabbit hide in the second box. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for leather.

Congratulations, you have made leather in Minecraft!

How to get Leather in Survival Mode

You can add leather to your inventory in Survival mode by killing a specific type of mob. So let’s get started!

1. Find a Mob

First, you need to find a type of mob that drops leather when it is killed, such as a cow, horse, donkey, mule, llama or mooshrow.

2. Attack and Kill the Mob

Once you find one of these mobs, you need to attack it. When you attack the mob, it will turn pink as it takes damage.

Continue to chase and attack the mob. Once you have killed the mob, it may drop leather if you are lucky. There isn’t a 100% chance that the mob will drop leather when it dies. If it doesn’t drop leather, find another mob and try again.

3. Pick up the Leather

Make sure you pick up the leather before it disappears.
