Finally after several years of it sitting unused in the workshop I’ve got my big Singer sewing machine working. I bought it because it can sew up to half an inch of leather, imagine all the things I could do with that! Unfortunately I had no designs that needed that thickness of leather and over the years nothing leapt to the front of my imagination. Recently I decided that this had to change and the first pieces are starting to appear. It’s going to take a while to get used to a machine that could sew through my hand if I get it wrong but I think the results will be worth it.
