(Amount & Crafted Item) - (Amount & Materials Needed)
Before we get started, though, we want to recommend that you pair Leatherworking with Skinning and to level both professions up at the same time. Doing so will make it easier for you to get the needed leathers and hides to craft. You could buy them at the Auction House but that can get pretty expensive.
Approximate Materials Needed
First off, this is the list of all materials you will need throughout leveling up all 300 ranks, as well as how many of each you will need:
57 Ruined Leather Scraps
470 Light Leather
275 Medium Leather
20 Heavy Hide
195 Heavy Leather
450 Thick Leather
475 Rugged Leather
To start your leatherworking journey, you need to become an Apprentice first, which can be completed after reaching level 5 and talk to a Leathering working Trainer. They are located in every major city. If you need help to find them, Speak with a guard in a City Guard and they will tell you where to look.
