Leather machines: useful and practical
Nowadays leather machines are suitable for many different types of textiles, however, when you want to work with a specific material such as this, it is advisable to look for a special machine for it because the machines for working leather have a different power than the conventional ones.
So before buying any leather goods sewing machine, think about what kind of leather you are going to sew, maybe a standard machine with the appropriate accessories will work for you.
We know that tasks such as threading leather sewing machines can be somewhat complex, so you have to do it carefully.
On the other hand, you need need needles and threads different from those used in a conventional machine, because if you think of using the common ones, you will soon see how the leather frays and the seams fall out.
If you have worked with leather you know that it is a rather thick material and somewhat difficult to handle, but don’t worry, you can choose a good sewing machine for leather goods and get to work.
With the simple tips we will give you and a little practice you can become an excellent professional leatherworker:
Choose the right needles for leather sewing machines: When sewing, it is very important that you use the right needle for leather.
These differ from the usual ones in that they are thicker and less elastic, their eyelet is larger because the threads are more voluminous, they also have a sharp point to better penetrate the material.
These needles are harder and more resistant because they must pierce the leather correctly, it is very simple, you must use a needle that corresponds to the fabric or in this case to the leather.
It is recommended that they have a thickness of between 80 and 100 (European nomenclature), of course, we must go testing with different measures because as you know all leathers are not equal.
Select the thread well: You must be very careful when choosing the thread, it must be more resistant than the normal one, usually for sewing leather the waxed thread is used over 1 mm thick.
Do not use pins: If you go through it or mark it (depending on the type of leather) you may not be able to hide it or rectify it, so it is best to use a clamp to fix the material.
You should apply a little talcum powder so that the material slides better (please do not exaggerate).
We recommend you to practice before you start, use some piece of leather that you have at home.
It is important that you start with something simple: as in all projects in which you are a novice, it is convenient that you start little by little until you master the technique and become an expert in leather.
Start with simple designs, a belt or a wallet, in fact, you can make the design you like in another type of fabric and then replicate it in leather.
It is essential that you use a special presser foot for sewing leather.
After you have the experience and mastered the techniques, you can think about an industrial leather sewing machine
