Since I got the new foot for my machine I am just thrilled to be sewing vinyl – no difference than sewing cottons with this foot. I am making the strap from the brown vinyl fake leather.
I cut the vinyl 3 times the width of the finished strap and folded it in 3rds. I stitched next to the edge then 1/4” away. I want this strap to be adjustable so added 2 D rings to the end of a short piece of the strap. This short end will be stitched to one side of the bag.I stitched under the end of the long end then added a loop at the end on the right side of the strap.The last step is threading the strap – the loop keeps the end from flapping when it is shortened.
