Mocassin by Nagyfugedi Mocassin by Nagyfugedi
Dear All,

this is my first submission. :) A leather mocassin, I made. Cowhide upper and 0.4 mm cowhide for the sole. Stiched with strong, black wax-thread. I hope you like the wallnuts as decoration. Many thanks, that I could join this great site. More leatherworks and photos coming soon.

Greetings!

Your:

It's good you hand sewed them together. The first leather items I made were stitched with a machine using cheap thread. If you're not careful, stitching on the machine can do more damage than good.

Many thanks for your kind words. I shall remain by hand sewing, and If I had in mind investing in a machine, I def. would now change my mind, as your opinion is very important to me!

There are plenty of sewing machines that do the job nicely, it's just a matter of using the right one with the right thread, stitch length, etc. The thing with sewing machines is, if you don't have enough control of it you can perforate the leather too much which will make it tear just like perforated paper, when under stress. Also, there are leathers that simply handle being sewn on a machine better then others. Chrome tanned leather, such as upholstery or garment leather does nicely with a machine, but vegetable tanned leather, such as saddles and holsters look better when hand sewn.

I see. Many Thanks for your lesson Sir. I am working now on a bag. I started my day early just because of it. :) My girlfriend thought I am getting up so early to make her breakfast. She was a bit disappointed. She was like: " CURSE YOU! I figured you are making some food."  And I was like: Ehm, no, but look, how clean these cuts are... Clap
