The leather sewing kit is a vital piece of gear in DayZ Standalone. It repairs damaged but still functional items in 'badly damaged' or reloaded condition to 'Worn' status. This means that if you damage one of the tools in your stitching set, all of the other tools in the set are still working fine, except for the damaged tool. Once you remove the damaged item from the 'Wear' state, it will be fixed back to its original position by the Leather Sewing Kit. The repairing process is very simple and should not pose any problems, given that you have all the required materials. You may need to replace some of the broken pieces with new ones, depending on how extensive the damage is.
Using the Leather Sewing Kit to make Leather thread is very easy. To start off, you should have all the required Leather threads, such as 22 yard or 24-yard threads for mending seams, splitters, drawers, pockets, etc. You can either purchase these from a store or from crafting shops found within the Greenzone. Once you have all the threads, you may begin to repair the items that require it.
When you have repaired the various pieces of leather that you have, check if they are still in their correct places by looking at their location in the GUI. If you see a yellow arrow next to an item, this means that you need to drag it to the desired location on the Wiki. Then, press the space bar on your keyboard to bring up the relevant documentation for that particular item. If you need help with any of the commands, there are several Help tabs located on the top right corner of the page. If you cannot find help documentation for a specific command, then just look at the step-by-step instructions for that particular item in the crafting recipe resource pane.
The next step is to add all the pieces of leather that you have bought into the corresponding slots of the crafting bench. If you are using the leather sewing kit, simply click on the 'add new item' button on the bottom toolbar. This will open up the Add tab in the crafting interface. Once you have added the items to the bench, press the 'addle' button next to them on the left-hand side of the screen. This will cause the items to be placed automatically onto the bench as you sew them together.
After you have finished assembling all the pieces, you will notice that they now form a basic structure. To complete the item, you should press the 'finish' button on the toolbar. Once you have done so, you will notice that the piece now weighs more than before. Now that you have used your new leather sewing kit, you will notice that there are a few more things that you can do with it.
One of the main things that you can do with it is to use your newly purchased leather sewing kit as a substitute for your own needles. If you have just started learning how to sew, you will most likely have very thin needles attached to your workwear. This is because the amount of material that you can sew with is limited by the number of needles that you can get your hands on. With the leather sewing kit, however, you are now able to stitch through thick layers of waxed linen thread without using your own needles.
You can also make use of your new kit as a replacement for your own needles when it comes to quilting. There are many people who start out with the idea of learning how to quilt before moving on to the more challenging tasks like cross-stitch or embroidery. If you have this kit, then you will not need to buy new needles to be able to quilt using waxed threads. All that you will need to do is to remove the clasps from the needles and attach the waxed threads.
Apart from the numerous benefits that come with using quick and efficient stitching and crafting kits like leatherworking tools, you can also be assured of a lot of conveniences. Since all that you need to do is to slide the leather sewing kit into your workwear and start stitching, you do not have to get down on your hands and knees while stitching. You can do it in just a few minutes. All that you need to ensure is that you have to sharpen your skills, using your new leatherworking tools properly, and maintaining your leatherworking tools well.
