What are you most proud of? I am proud to use new skills that I'm learning while working with leather, especially stitching around the curves. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This project requires knowledge of working with leather and a walking foot industrial sewing machine. Leather does not require as many steps as sewing with fashion fabrics. Although some machines can sew leather with the right needle and teflon foot, the thickness of the leather and the type of thread needed affects the stitching.
