PIXXO 3D shows an easy way to make stitches in Blender by simple modeling methods.
Pixxo 3D Juandre (Jay) Labuschagne covers how you can build some stitching, perfect for those leather details and more. Juandre notes that the technique shown here might be a bit of a workaround, “there are probably better ways around this, but for now, I hope you guys might find it useful.”
Juandre’s last tutorial showed how to create this great-looking felt material that uses the principled shader and particles to get that escaping fiber look to the render. Check that out here.
