Stitching pony (quick and clean)
the third arm…
I have done quite a few leather sheaths, and always been fighting with it, and looked at these ponies full of envy, so when I decided to make sheaths for all my axes I thought it was the time to make myself one of these.
1. Stitching pony.
2. Jaws open ready for use.
3. All open.
4. Bottom up.
5. This is how you use it.
6. Remember gloves if you don’t sew often, trust me I speak from bitter experience.
You can see more details in the blog:
The stitching pony is a ‘light’ version of the stitching horse, and the difference is as I understand, that the horse also is a stool, where the pony is a ‘sit on’ clamp.
Hope it can be to some inspiration, I can recommend making one if you are going to stitch in leather,
