"Idle hands are the devil's playground" they say. Not for me! I started a little project I had in my mind for some time now: to place the logo I designed for my motorcycle tank on the back of my leather jacket.
So I went out and got myself some scrap leather from the local shoemaker, cut out the various pieces and glued them back together with some rubber adhesive and finally stitched them onto the jacket.
If you like my work, follow me on my blog!
Here is how to do it:
1# Find some scraps of leather of different colours
Step 1: Print!
Step 2: Cut!
It's easier to cut the leather if you glue the paper on the leather. Use scissors.
Step 3: Fit!
Step 4: Clamp!
Step 5: Stitch!
Use a proper needle and thread for leather. The normal needles will just not be strong enough. Use some small piece of leather for your fingers/hand to push the needle through the logo.
Step 6: Result
Not perfect, but that's what's "handmade" is all about, right? ;-)
