    made clothes out of(by) goat sk

    Can you say "by" for "out of" in this case? Does only "out of" work?

    ex)Selkirk cooked the vegetables and goat meat, and made clothes out of(by) goat skin.....

    Re: made clothes out of(by) goat sk

    You make clothes 'out of' a fabric or skin 'by' sewing peices together.
