Stitching

Hand stitching rolling pin ends is one of the next jobs.  This is for the harness that it will hang from and below shows the construction of the loops.  I worked out how to secure the D rings by cutting a letter box style hole and then skiving the leather on the back to fold and glue on the underside.  The stitch holes were all punched out and then using a linen thread, the same as the square leather frame I stitched the edges.  This as i mentioned before is very therapeutic and rhythmical and lets you get into the swing of it.  I enjoyed making these bits and so now the rolling pin just needs its printed sheath to be complete.  Nearly 2 objects done!
