Da Bom in Black Pleather

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Improvisational What are you most proud of? Manipulating this stiff black crazed pleather upholstery fabric is a challenge. START OUT WITH NEW NEEDLE for maximum glide and control of this fabric. I made a matching padded mini purse--just the right size padding for my camera--keeps it from knocking around in the purse. I made it by free motion quilting a hunk of lining fabric to a polar fleece foundation. A cotton loop and handmade polymer clay button for mini purse closure. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Remember to change your machine needles often--avoids all kinds of problems. I can give you a long list of things that can go wrong if you use old dull machine needles. Like they say here in Wisconsin, Uf-dah! (Norwegian for Oh My Gosh!)
