    Wow, thanks Bamaboots! I totally missed that tutorial in my searching. I prefer a sharpened McKay stitcher, so I think it'd do the job. I usually use it for lock stitching shoe uppers to the soles.

    Greetings Sulla:
    Not to be a smart**s but sweatbands are not shoes. You have the right idea but get a sewing machine needle and use it in your awl if it fits. Or better yet a pen vise and sewing needle.
    No need to bring a cannon to a flyswatter fight.
    Be well. Bowen

    Good call, Bowen. I should have mentioned I use a sewing machine needle in my awl and polyester upholstery thread.
