How to do

  • Print and cut out the template for the earring.
  • Transfer the template to the leather and cut out two pieces.
  • Snap on the Non-Stick Foot for IDT™ System
  • Place stabilizer underneath the white leather strip and sew a row of your favorite decorative stitch.

Note: The opening in the Non-Stick Foot allow a 6mm stitch width, if your stitch is wider, adjust the stitch width. You can also try sewing with a regular presser foot using the IDT™ system for better feeding.

  • Remove the stabilizer and trim the leather strip to be just a little wider than the stitch.
  • Cut two pieces equally long as the width of the earring. Glue the decorated white leather pieces to the earring.
  • Use scissors to fringe the bottom section of the earring as shown.
  • Make a small hole in the top of each earring and insert a hook.

Enjoy your earrings!
