speedy stitcher

I found this on sale at the local hardware store. Did I need it? Umm…no. But I couldn’t resist! I have no idea what I will make with it yet, but I have a lot of leather to experiment with. And the waxed thread is exactly like regular bookbinding thread.

The needles are crazy sharp! I usually manage to stab myself every stab bind or two…but this point could do a lot more damage! Guess I’ll have to be extra careful.

I bought over half a dozen pounds of shoe leather scrap last year. This isn’t even half of my stash. Stay tuned as I figure out how to use it…
