Repairing Topstitching on Leather by Hand


 

Hand sewing a zipper can be simple. This video tutorial shows how a topstitch is used to fix a purse zipper – on a mini-backpack style bag.

All you need is a heavy duty needle, thread, and maybe a thimble and dot of glue – you can sew leather, heavy canvas, or pleather by hand for simple repairs.

In this video, the topstitching holds the zipper in place.
