Stitching leather on a sewing machine

  • Do use the sharpest needle to stitch leather. You can get a leather needle in your sewing supply store – it is worth it. The machine leather needle has a small triangle shape at the tip which makes it easier to pierce the material.
  • Do use the strongest thread to sew leather. A nylon thread will be stronger and more suitable than the regular cotton one we use for sewing fabric.
  • Do use a walking foot or Teflon nonstick foot when sewing leather. One trick I have read about is to use scotch tape on the underside of the regular foot to make it nonstick if you don’t have the above-said feet.
  • Do use soft leather to sew on your home sewing machine. Your machine will thank you.
  • Do get an industrial sewing machine if you are thinking of sewing leather regularly. The thickness of leather will be impossible to sew through with a home sewing machine, even with the leather sewing needle.
  • Do use binder clips to hold edges together when sewing or cutting leather; Pins are avoided when sewing with leather as the holes made by pins are very visible and mar the leather.
