What was your source for this sewing project? Improvisational What are you most proud of? This is my second project using this beautiful grey and black upholstery fabric. The first project was a laptop tote. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Some upholstery fabrics are quite sturdy and require a stronger sewing machine needle. I use 16/100, and adjust length of stitch (longer). Experiment on a scrap piece of fabric to get the right stitch length. Two minutes time spent adjusting the stitch length will give you effortless sewing and confidence!
