I am a sewing designer by trade. If you have ever sewn vinyl material, you know how difficult it is, because it is very slippery. In the past when I have sewn vinyl, my stitching has looked very unprofessional.
I have just figured out a wonderful trick to sew vinyl with beautiful stitching. Lay a piece of wax paper over your vinyl and stitch your project. When you are finished just tear the wax paper away. Beautiful stitching every time!

Having struggled my way through making a lightweight travel bag, I found the vinyl easier to move through the machine after coating it with a small amount of talcum powder which simply wipes off with a damp cloth afterwards. Wish I had thought of it from the start!
