Tips for Sewing with Vinyl

These tips are courtesy of Sandra Betzina.

Tips:


  1. Use a knit needle, a teflon foot and a longer stitch length (3.5)
  2. Stick a teflon sheet to the bed of the machine, with a rectangular hole cut out where the feed dogs will go.
  3. Curves are difficult so try to remove ease/ shaping. eg create a bust dart rather than a princess line.
  4. Add Steam a Seam under the seam allowances - this allows neat topstitching with no drag lines.
