I have an old chair that belonged to my rich uncle. I remember from my childhood it was leather and to a 3 or 4 year old it seemed huge. When the leather wore out and split my family got it and my mother reupholstered it in fabric, probably about 60 years ago. The springs broke and it is no longer usable. I found some surplus leather that with some "decorative stitching" I think I have enough.
I want to put leather side panels and back on the chair. They were done in fabric with cardboard tack strips and hand sewn. With the leather for the straight edges I was planning to use cardboard and metal tack strips. One edge however is fairly curvy. Will pli grip work with a fairly thick leather?
Any tips or things to watch out for?
