  1. Thanks very much for the reply guys, I can see where I need to change up on a few things, being careful with my edges and making those triangles a bit more uniform and cut more of them. It is possible to hand skive suede at all, or it is that really a no go area? Thanks again guys, great help
  2. Hi there guys, Just had a quick question about folding suede for a nice edge. I've had a quick look around and I can't seem to find any information on better/proper ways to fold edges over before stitching a piece of leather on top. I've attached two images of some bracers I'm working on with a suede liner, now I wanted to fold to suede over on the edges and glue/stitch the leather on top for a nice clean edge but I'm having trouble folding it around the curves and corners. Is there a 'proper' way to cut/fold the suede to get it around those curves, as it doesn't seem to stretch a huge amount. The white card is the template for the leather to go on top. Thanks for your time! -David
  3. That is looking pretty amazing, love how the rich leather sets off the rest of the bike as well, beautiful work!
  4. Many thanks for the information Constabulary! Certainly a help.
  5. Bit of a shot in the dark but I was wondering if anyone knew where to find a smaller slim jim type foot for the singer 135K103? I've had a look around and there doesn't seem to be much beyond the standard foot and a piping foot I managed to pick up. Both are great but sometimes are a bit big for smaller projects or projects with narrow edges. I believe there might be compatible feet for the 103 but I'm not sure what model/make they would be. Thanks for the help!
  6. Hey all, I just wanted to say Hello and introduce myself, names David and I've been playing with leather crafting on and off for a year or so but recently I started getting into it a bit more and tried my hand at a few paid projects, really enjoyed them. I'm not sure why I waited so long to join an online community like this one, there is so much amazing work on here and seriously great way to learn and engage I have a few project images on my tumblr leathersaurus.tumblr.com Id like to devote more time to leather working but being an Illustrator and a landlord my time is fairly limited, however hopefully in the future I can set more time aside! -David
