Leather Crafting FAQs

Which skills do I need for leather crafting?

The skills you will use on a regular basis depends on the types of projects you will focus on. Of course, certain skills are more important in leather crafting than others. If you are just starting out with the craft, here are some of the basic skills to look into.

  • Learn the saddle stitch: One of the first things to learn is the saddle stitch, which is the name for the most commonly used stitch on leather. Fortunately, you do not need an expensive sewing machine, as this particular technique is done by hand.
  • Burnishing: Another skill you want to look at is burnishing - this is a process where leather fibres are heated by using simple friction. This technique is vital for most leather crafting projects, as it helps you neaten up those raw edges.

What are the basic tools for leather crafting?

When you work with leather, you will find that your basic cutting tools just will not provide the desired results. Therefore, you want to look into getting the basic tools for leather crafting, which you can find at Spotlight too. But which are the basic leather crafting tools you need?

  • Cutting blades: If you think about leather crafting, one of the first things you will think about is how to cut your leather. You can use a cutting blade or special craft scissors to cut your leather.
  • The rotary cutter: Rotary cutters can be your best friend when you just start out with leather crafting. They are affordable and can cut through relatively tough materials. And while the round knife will provide much better results for most leather crafters, the rotary cutter is a fine place to start nonetheless.
  • Chisels: When you need to make some holes in the leather for a project, you need the appropriate tool to do so. Getting some chisels is therefore recommended. Like some of the other tools in our overview, they do require a little bit of practice first. So, you may want to try them on a spare bit of leather before you use them on a project.
  • Embossing and leather stamping tools: To personalise your projects, use stamps and embossing supplies.
