I've knocked up a simple jig to try to get the stitch spacings even on my next sheath. It's as simple as it gets.....But i like simple!! It just keeps everything straight and even. I could have bought one of the rolling stitch wheels, but i thought i'd give this idea a shot first. It cost me nothing, and being a Scotsman it means i can spend more on square sausage and Tennents lager!!





So far so good!!

Knocked up this little gizmo to try and even up my pitiful stitching.



So far so good! Certainly neater than the last one!!

I know what you're thinking :- Buy a stitch marking wheel thingy you miserable git!.......But where's the challenge in that!!
