u/chofstone · 2 pointsr/Portland - Barge Glue. It also comes in larger containers. Hopefully, you won't need that.

You will need a way of clamping or a least putting pressure on the sole.

Barge cement is good for flexibility.

I'm going to agree with getting a new strap, but check out the kits they make on Fabnik. I bought the Stitch kit and it's really very nice. And you get to make it yourself, so it's even more of a sense of accomplishment.

Barge will do it. I can't find the original tutorial that taught me it, but it said put some on the patch, then on jacket (which shouldn't be different than panniers), wait a sec, then press together. Here's some one else who used it successfully.

Sorry for the late reply!

Leathercrafting is easier to get into than it looks. It's just like taking pieces of paper and stapling them together, except you are using leather and stitches.

I think the best way to start out is to make something simple and cut out as many unnecessary steps as possible (for example buy pre-dyed leather rather than trying to dye it yourself). Later on, you can start identifying features you want to add (e.g. rounded corners, beveled & burnished edges, etc.) and purchase more equipment as needed.

If you wanted to create a simple cardholder that looks like this, here's way you could do that:

  1. Cut leather rectangles -- two 101 x 71 mm + one 101 x 60 mm.

  2. Glue any parts that will stay together (I really like Barge Contact Cement or this water-based adhesive). This means gluing the two 101 x 71 pieces together completely and gluing the edges of the 101 x 60 piece to one side. You can use Q-tips to neatly apply glue along edges.

  3. Use something like a wing divider or edge creaser to draw a straight line along the edge to be stitched. In this case, it would be a rectangle (see red lines in this image).

  4. Use a pricking iron to poke holes along the line.

  5. Saddle stitch your item.

    That's it! Optionally you can look into beveling and burnishing your item.

    If you are in the US, I'd recommend picking up a small panel of leather from Rocky Mountain Leather Supply. You can just get a sqft (9" x 16"). I used 3 oz (1.2 mm) thick Buttero leather in the cardholder above.

    Then you need some thread and needles. If you want a more rugged, traditional look, Ritza "tiger" thread works great. For small goods, I'd use the thinnest available (0.6 mm for small spools). Size 4 John James needles are perfect for this. An alternative to the "tiger" thread is waxed linen thread (my preference).

    Good pricking irons can be expensive, but you can probably start out with some cheap ones on Amazon. There are a few common options. These include diamond-shaped ones and french styled ones.

    As you get better, you will want to start experimenting with rounded corners, burnishing edges, etc. There are a lot of great resources on this subreddit. If you have any particular questions about what I do or what tools I use, feel free to message me or email me at [email protected]!

    P.S. Armitage Leather has a great tutorial for making wallets.
