The edge/flesh stitch passes from the flesh side of a piece of leather out the side of one edge of the same piece of leather.

This is used in shoemaking on soles when attaching them to the upper and/or rand from the mid-12th century until the mid 14th century and also for butting two pieces to leather together. The upper could also sometimes have edge/flesh stitching, but were uncommon.
