Today I was asked to sew into a piece of paper to simulate hand sewing into leather. I was to cut a piece of paper to a 2.4 cm by 11.5 cm and to sew a few cm of hand stitching with C-Lon Bead Cord (on right) and C-lon Bead Cord Tex400 (on left), sewing with holes 4mm apart.

I printed a rectangle on a piece of paper using Photoshop with the measurement listed above. Then with the help of a steel ruler I punched holes 4mm apart using an awl.
As I was sewing, I could not pull hard enough on the stitches as the paper I chose was not stiff enough. Next, I will try this on leather, so keep posted!
