    You cant unpick leather and can only sew it once as it leaves holes. You will need a plastic foot to sew it with so that it does not get marks or tear. You don’t have to hem leather or overlock the seam allowances (however if there is a lot of wear, the seams may tear). Large stitch length is needed. Usually thick thread is needed

    you can use paper clips, or those triangular hair clips that sort of snap shut to hold it together. Use the longest stitch length that gives you a secure seam (otherwise you are essentially perforating the leather and it will eventually tear along the stitch line). You might try buying light double sided tape from a store that makes sails or awnings… it temporarily holds a seam together so you can test it, and it is also easier to sew, and then comes off clean. Be sure to use a leather, or canvas needle, and sturdy thread — but not too sturdy, or it will cut the leather over time. Tandy Leather has some great how-to videos on YouTube.

    The author, I believe that you do not have any problems with progress if your work is directly related to your specialty. It may be difficult at first when a day in the life of a college freshman is the very first and you do not know how to combine your business and distribute the priority of time. Ask for help to undergraduates, they will prompt and it seems to me that even the teachers will support your idea of working on your own project in the factory.

    I’ve never actually done this, but thinking about the task brings a couple solutions to my mind:

    You might use glove needles, which are sharp and diamond pointed. But they tend to be rather dainty, so they may not be what you want. It depends on your leather thickness and type: thick tooling leather isn’t what these needles are for. They are for soft, thin leather. Or perhaps sailmaker’s needles will be ideal for this, since they are designed to sew canvas sails. Google the term, and you can see what they look like and where to buy some.

    I don’t do a lot of leather on my sewing machine (it’s Toyota) but do a lot of denim. 8 folds of it at times and might have to help it through the super thick stuff if I go slow… but it goes right through it.
