What advice would you give someone starting this project? When sewing with leather or vinyl there may be some problems with sticking to the presser foot , so you might want to consider using a tare away paper on top when sewing. Also when I had to do thicker areas like attaching the straps to the purse base I found using the darning foot with the feed dogs still engaged worked perfectly .

Wow! Love it. Really awesome. I recently tried leather (just for trims, not entire bags like you have) and had a night mare on my machine. So big thanks for the tip re paper and darning foot.

This is so cute! I'm a Barbie collector and love putting unusual (read: that nobody else has) things in my collection. This looks fantastic, great job.
