    Re: Strap Journal - New to the watch strap game, but not new to leather work

    Thank you very much!
    Next I have marked the strap with a pricking iron to indicate where the stitch holes will be located and how the stitches will lay. Each hole will be pierced with the awl and saddle stitched by hand with waxed linen thread. The saddle stitch is the strongest method of stitching and cannot be replicated by machine. This stitch is achieved using one piece of thread with two needles that are both passed through each hole in sequence. This photo illustrates a strap before and after stitching.

    I really like the fun colors this goat leather comes in. It makes for a bright and happy strap.

    Thanks Bryan00. Unfortunately there isn't anywhere online that teaches how to make watch straps really. It is just a lot of practice and trial and error. Leatherworker.net is a good forum to learn leathercrafting on. Good luck!
