Default Re: Leather Holes

maybe a heat gun at a low setting? hopefully you used needles for leather (they are out there) so the holes are not that pronounced? Take this as a learning experience maybe? I have done this and paid the price so I feel your pain! if you post a pic we may be able to provide other suggestions

Had this issues when I did leather work. Get the leather wet, not soaking wet, but damp and "cool" to the touch. This will open up the grain in the leather. Then just rub or massage the leather and the holes should close up. Dry it slow and if you can, rub some Lexol brand Neatsfoot conditioner. You don't want Neatsfoot oil as this will eat the stitching over time.

Thank You John
Actually I've talked to many people around my area, who fix leather said that they don't notice the hole that much, and i showed it to my customer, and she said don't worry about it.

I would like to thank you for the knowledge, if this happens again, I will use this advice
Thanks

Not a problem. I will say that it works best if you can heal those stitch holes before trying to stitch it again.
