    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.
