Stitched it for more security. These are XL hm5 sheepskin. Not regular. Lip extension, all leather. This was my first pad attempt for the dt1X0 line. I just wanted to try leather.
Another way is to superglue pad onto base, as well as lip of the pad to the lip of the dt pad, and trim.
Some updated pics (sorry for bad camera - laptop webcam).
DO ONLY if you wish for better fit with round leather pads, and want more of 'cleaner' fit. I will admit it took me a few tries to figure out but its not rocket science.
I got both an appreciation for stitching by hand; which with leather can be challenging. As well as cutting leather, and learning how hard it is to manually cut straight lines.
I am confident, the more I make, the better they will turn out. The second pad took much less time figuring out than the first which needed a plan and execution.
Thinking of adding a blue, and red thin strip to clean up small gap lines..Or white to keep it all white. Will see.
