Step 7: Stiching on the leather piece
To bring the two sides together, it's simple going around the stitching placed by the sewing machine. The hand stitching is simply a spiral weave between the two running stitches. After the first pass, I went back with a hook to tighten and space the tread. To visualize the pattern, it can be found on the wires pattern of a chain linked fence. It's the same concept and creates the same pattern. Note, there's a continuous piece of clear double stick tape running the whole outside circumference and a couple of pieces on the inside to keep the leather wrap from twisting during use.
