Q&A with cgoyer

Pam Sews asked:
thanks for the vinyl tip - really helps
cgoyer answered:
You're welcome. You should have seen the first one I tried to sew, it was a bit of a mess. Then I remembered I had a roller foot. Made a huge difference.
Gail M. asked:
I'm glad you enjoyed my pattern. Isn't it the neatest trick to layer everything before you sew... And I love the tip to iron up a quarter inch before you sew. Makes it very easy to iron flat after you turn it all right side out. I never have a problem sewing over the vinyl, but they say you can add a bit of scotch tape to the bottom ov your presser foot.

Gail - Thanks for sharing this great pattern! I will try the tape trick next time. One thing I did on the last one was to use masking tape to hold the vinyl in place. Wish I had thought of that in the beginning. Years ago I made a bag to hold art supplies and used vinyl for the pockets and sewed on velcro to close the pockets. I don't remember having any problems sewing the vinyl then but it was about 20 years ago.
