How to Hand Stitch Leather

Hand stitching leather is a lot easier (and cheaper!) than using a bulky industrial leather machine. Besides, you’ll produce more authentic looking boots, pouches, belts and accessories when you hand sew them. This video shows you the easiest stitch to use for joining two pieces of leather. You’ll also learn how to bevel and edge and make a simple stitching pony out of a 2×4. Enjoy!
