How To Get Leather In Minecraft
1. Find The Animal
The best way to get leather in Minecraft is to first find a cow or horse (or other animal listed above). If you're having troubles finding one, you can summon one or use a spawn egg.
2. Attack The Animal
Once you have found your chosen animal, you need to start attacking it. You'll notice it turns pink as it takes damage and may make a noise.
Continue attacking the animal until it dies. The animal will then drop 0 to 2 pieces of leather upon death. You may have to find another animal to attack if it didn't drop any leather this time.
3. Pick Up The Leather
Finally, pick up the leather before it disappears. Congratulations, you now have leather! You can make armor or books with leather in Minecraft.
