Internship leather sewing Red Knight

I did a lot of sewing on the leather for the knights and their horses.  This set is for the main knight the son of the man that contracted the work.  The dragons are laser cut we did some free hand work ( free hand done by Alex Buie).
 
 
 Wish I owned an Industrial walking foot sewing machine.  They are a dream to use when sewing leather and on heavy items which a lot of costumes are.  One of my other jobs as an over-hire stitcher is to sew those aprons that you wear when getting x-rays the real heavy ones, I use a walking foot on those too at work.  I also work in a local playhouse theater where I help stitch costumes for plays and I work as a dresser there at times.

The different leathers used in these projects was cow, buffalo and deer skins. The different textures and weights of the different hides is interesting in how it drapes and sews.  It was interesting also how we pinned them together  as pins are not used they are glued up then sewn.

 These photos where taken during the fitting.  We used painters tape to mark where we wanted things to go.  This was because it was easy to remove and didn't mar the leather.
 
 This is Jen, my mentor, and one of the Knights.
