Wallets Crocodile Textured Leather Wallet October 23, 2016 Donna B Hand stitched with linen thread- this was another experiment – I wanted to see how my stitching skills were. I used Stohlman’s book for reference and recommend newbies follow the instructions step by step including don’t set your awl down as you sew with two needles in two hands. Yes! Make or buy a stitching pony. I changed up the pattern a bit and added two hidden pockets; this was a step I would include in another wallet for a family member. I also turned the leather for the interior piece in so it is visible when you look in the bill slot – I lined the flesh side of the exterior piece with a piece of coordinating suede.
