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.
