What are you most proud of? That I tried to sew a material that I had never worked with before, but always wanted to try. What advice would you give someone starting this project? * Be sure to use a brand new heavy duty or leather needle to ensure that your needle is sharp. * At first I tried to sew the faux leather using the standard foot on my sewing machine. That doesn't work well. Investing $10 to get a roller foot (made for sewing leather, velvet, etc) made all the difference!
