cowhide upholstery/seat cushion

I would like to change out the vinyl seat cushions on my bar stools and replace it with cowhide.

Is this a possible DIY project?

There will be sewn seams required as it is a deep cushion (not just pull and staple). I have done several much more complicated furniture upholstery projects (but in fabric) and I have strong sewing skills and a fairly high end home sewing machine. But I'm nervous ... don't want to go out and buy a cowhide and start cutting it up only to find out I'm in over my head.

Also read that I need a walking foot for my machine (which I'm familiar with from my quilting days, but don't currently own). Is the walking foot really necessary?

Anybody have any experiences they can share?
