What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get the stilletto

Janis P on craftsy.com

Great job! I LOVE the fabrics that you chose. Those soft colors are so beautiful. I appreciated your advice: Get the stiletto! I can't agree more. Do you love your Pfaff? I'm debating about a new machine and have heard great comments about those machines. Did you have any trouble sewing through the vinyl and layers of Soft and Stable?

Thanks for the compliment. I love my Pfaff. It's actually my third one. My first one was stolen, so my homeowner's insurance replaced it with the 1475 which I just recently traded in when I bought my serger. I love the Quilt Expression 4.0. It did have a hiccup getting through the two layers of strapping on the tab with the strap and fabric, etc. underneath, but made it with some coaxing. No problems with the vinyl. I think I will change my needle to a jean's needle just for the tabs. I didn't break the top stitch needle, but the jeans needle might go through more easily. I am going to make another in a new fabric I bought yesterday - lime greens with bright aqua, white, other blues. I am so pleased with this project. I found that with the stiletto, I sew a little straighter, especially around the corners. Thanks again.

Annie, my Bernina went through the vinyl with no problem. I also made your carryall orange tote with no problem. Berninas sew through anything.
