Making Kuiil Helmet

You need to know a little about how seams are done to be able to do this helmet.  I found this article on the web that shows a how different seams are done.  (

The helmet uses a number of different types of seams.  

  • Double Stitched side seam
  • A flat felled seam

Step 1: Cut out all of the patterns and arrange them on your leather.

Step 2: Sew the ear section to the side head sections. This seam is done with what is called a double top stitched seam.  This video is a good video I found to show you how to make the first part of this seam.   After this part is done, a line of stiches is then run along each side of the seam. 

Step 3: Sew the ridge that goes along the top of the helmet.

Step 4: Sew the ear covers together

Step 5: Sew the ear covers into the ear section.

Step 6: Sew the two sides of the helmet to the center section.
