(His former boss was head of the design room for North Beach Leather – us design students got a tour once…. what fun!). He actually did not recommend using leather needles for garments. You just get bigger holes in your garment. He just used heavyweight sharp needles (like 14s and 16s) and a 3-4 stitch length.

WHY?

I like the idea, but even before reading Eric’s post, was concerned it might be a fire hazard. Something on my mind since moving into a pre-war apartment in Brooklyn!

combined with this http://www.amazon.com/Leviton-T5630-W-Tamper-Resistant-Receptacle-125-Volt/dp/B008O11IEY/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1371554153&sr=8-6&keywords=Charging+outlet+with+cradle

and this http://www.amazon.com/Leviton-80409-W-Wallplate-Standard-Thermoset/dp/B00006JPO6/ref=pd_bxgy_hi_img_z

should provide an option that would meet fire and safety codes.

I like the idea of the paper/leather project, but agree with the engineer that too often these imaginative improvisations have undesirable and unforeseen consequences. In this case the consequences could be serious (i.e., fire, death).

North American power outlets are flush with the wall [type A or B–the picture above is a B], no depression to hold the round (or oval, or flattened hexagonal) sticky-outy-thingy. I like the European plugs. The nice round prongs are the least like a caltrop when you accidentally step on one with bare feet. I have unwillingly extensively tested this. :(
