Today, let’s talk about stitches.
I already uploaded a video about how to do saddle stitch which is the very basic stitch in leather craft. You can refer to that, if you need it.
Then today, I want to talk about x stitch and box stitch.
Both can be used when we make flat structure and three-dimensional structure. 1. box stitch I’ll make two pieces out of one. Let’s say we want to attach them together. First mark stitch point. Just marks. Not punching. We should punch holes, right? But when you put 2 pieces of leather together for flat structure using box stitch, you want to do somewhat differently. Because thread should go from the surface through the edge. First mark stitch point. Just marks. Not punching. Make holes like this. Then let’s sew. This part is bumpy because of the thread. We can use a thin thread or tap with a hammer lightly. Then, let’s go to three dimensional one. In this case, we just punch holes for one the piece, and for the other one, make edge penetrating holes. 2. X stitch
I like x stitch. I use it when I want to make a vintage impression.
This one is easier. We can just make stitching holes normally. Usually, people use round dent for the holes. But I just use prickling iron. It doesn’t matter to me.
Punch holes. And then stitch like this. And let’s make a structure. Make holes as usual. Then stitch the same as before. Thank you for watching.
