  2. Piercing
  3. Way of sewing
  4. Fast sewing
  5. Unstitch

Let’s have a look from No.1 Basic stitch !

BASIC STITCH

1. Double loop
2. Regular stitch
3. Back stitch
STEP 1 : DOUBLE LOOP

Always draw the needle twice at the beginning and at the end of sewing.
The purpose of this step is to simply fix the thread.

Balance the thread to ensure there is an equal amount of thread on both sides.
STEP 2 : REGULAR STITCH

For each regular stitch you need to pass one needle from top to bottom through the corresponding holes on the leather parts and bring the other needle up from bottom to top through the same holes.

Keep on stitching, using the same rhythm for every stitch. For example: left needle first, right needle second.

Pull the thread at each stitch. Not too tight, just to keep the stitches even.
STEP 3 : BACK STITCH

When you get to the edge, pass the needle back through the last hole a second time. The purpose of this step is to make the stitch more secure.

Piercing ( Puncture a thread )

What causes piercing ?
It happens often when you sew. If you puncture a thread, a needle stucks in the thread, so you have a difficulty to pull a needle.

If you have a piercing area on your stitch, you cannot adjust your stitch, because piercing area stops a thread.

SUMMARY
Piercing disturbs adjust your stitch, but it helps to fasten your stitch. So you need to pay attention that your stitch is smooth.

Way of sewing

How to find a hole?
When you have difficulties with finding a hole, this easy method may help you. Do not sew two pieces at the same time.

SUMMARY
Try to pass the needle through the hole on one leather part and then through the corresponding hole on the other part.

Fast sewing

How to sew faster?
Pick up only one needle and sew, but please use this technique when the stitch is straight. If you use this technique at the shoe sole toe area, the stitch may look very ugly. Because normally you puncture a thread during sewing, called making Piercing( https://youtu.be/G8lejmc7mBg ). So you may have a difficulty with adjusting your stitch after sewing.

SUMMARY
Use this technique when the stitch is straight.

Unstitch

Step 1 : Pick a needle
Use a needle head to unstitch, because you can avoid damages on the leather surface.

Step 2 : Piercing area
If the thread is pierced, you cannot unstitch. But don’t worry, you just need to unstitch from another side. One stitch by one stitch you need to unstitch carefully.

SUMMARY
Use a needle head and unstitch one by one. If you feel the thread is fasten, this is pierced thread. So unstitch from another side.

First Baby Shoes Sewing Tips

As you can see, needle goes diagonally a bit. This is because of the different lengths between the sole and the vamp. Actually this difference in length makes the sole curved.

Sewing Tips – smashing the thread | First Baby Shoes

Sewing Tips for shoe making.

You have just sewn two parts together. Great! You worry that the thread will get loose? No worries, it won’t. To make the ending more secure, we advise you to smash the thread at the end of sewing. It helps thread to fix shoe parts more tightly. This is really easy to do. You just need to press the thread ends strongly with your fingers or punch them using hummer for example . After smashing the thread, it gets more frictional resistance and it won’t get loose for sure.

Here are photos presenting how to smash the thread and how it looks like after smashing it.

Sewing therapy | First Baby Shoes

We at First Baby Shoes love sewing. We strongly believe it has lots of therapeutic benefits. Sewing demands from us to focus both physically and mentally on a task. If you’re concentrating on sewing you can’t be worrying about how life will look like after giving a birth, or fretting about problems at work. Sewing is calming. It also gives a great feeling of pride in using one’s hands to create something unique. There is something wonderful about pointing to your baby’s shoes and saying: “I did that.” Being able to sew is great for our self – confidence. Sewing is also good for our brains. It builds our hand-eye coordination and keeps our fingers nimble.

We believe that hand-made is very powerful. There’s a lot of good energy and love put into hand-made items. That is why First Baby Shoes differ from ready made shoes. They are unique as they are hand-made by YOU!

How about indulging in a little sewing therapy with First Baby Shoes?

Why choose leather shoes for babies | First Baby Shoes

First Baby Shoes believe that leather is the best material for baby shoes. Why? 

Natural leather is the best material for shoes because:

  • It breaths. 

In warm weather, leather breathes and helps to absorb perspiration. Thanks to that, baby’s feet are kept cool and dry. But when it is cold outside, it prevents little feet from losing heat.

  • It is soft and flexible.

Baby feet need to have the ability to flex freely that way your baby’s weight is evenly spread out which makes proper balance ensured.

  • It is long-lasting.

Natural high-quality leather is very durable. You just need to take care of it and it will serve you long time. The leather used to make First Baby Shoes is exactly like that – the best. What is more, First Baby Shoes are long-lasting because they are hand crafted with durable stitching. 

Other than these three, there are a lot more of reasons why leather baby shoes are the best types of shoes to use for your baby.

 

Slow living

Here at First Baby Shoes we like the idea of slow living. What does it mean to us? Simply to live every day at a slower pace and take care about the community and environment. Slower means for us more conscious and more purposeful.

Our shoe making kits grew up from slow living idea. We believe making baby shoes can be a great way to slow down. To sew First Baby Shoes you need to sit down for a while and concentrate. No rush is needed. With each stitch you can think about your precious baby and the life you want for him/her. Do you want your baby to live in continuous rush? If not, you need to slow down first. Please enjoy each day, please be next to him/her to see each growth milestone he/she does and first steps he/she does in sewn by you First Baby Shoes.
