How to embroider with leather? Answered

My son tore his blue jeans and wanted me to patch them. I have a piece of leather from a skirt and the form of a cross would cover the tear. What stitch would you recommend to go around the edge of the cross?

A small running stitch or backstitch would work great! But you may need to pierce holes in the leather beforehand with a larger needle to make the sewing easier on your hands. :)
