WIP Wednesday #84: Straight line quilting, soft vinyl, zippers and denim

In this WIP Wednesday episode Vanessa is answering presubmitted questions about:

– sewing denim on a computerized JUKI sewing machine

– zipper foot seam allowances

– quilting through different battings and interfacings and

– how to straight line quilt through soft vinyl.

We also now carry Sew Hungry Hippie’s Soft Vinyl! We sell this buttery soft fabric in 10+ color ways and have sold out several times already. So, if you see something you like, order it while you can here: https://craftygemini.com/product-category/fabric/

This soft vinyl is heavier than quilting cotton but softer and lighter than cork fabric. It’s amazing to work with and can be fused to different interfacings or quilted to make fun bag projects.
