Sewing with Vinyl..... tutorial

Vinyl... a great product if you know how to use it....  This product can stick on the sewing machine bed,  but....

If you use tissue paper or scotchguard tape to slide this along the machine bed it is much easier.  Also put scotchguard tape along the edges of the needle plate alongside the feed dogs not over them as you will not be able to sew properly...
Another helpful item if you have this is the supreme slider a teflon sheet that sits over the machine bed to help your quilt slide. You can also buy teflon sewing feet now.

 Hold the pieces of vinyl up and away from machine also so they do not stick on the sewing bed, placing tissues under the vinyl will help this, also a teflon sheet as discussed above.

Here are some ideas for using vinyl.  Handy in pockets so you can see what is in there and also to show off the beautiful fabrics you sometimes hide with fabric pockets!

Have some fun trying this product out.  It has some great uses.
