Sewing with Faux Leather


sticky fabrics like faux leather do not move easily between the presser foot and feed dogs. This causes puckers and uneven stitching.
the fabric gathered because the faux leather piping was sticking to the presser foot.

Working with faux leather this week I learnt  by placing the sticky fabric between paper and sewing slowly I can avoid this problem.
 
 
I placed tracing paper between the zipper foot and faux leather piping and used my fingers to guide the fabric, stitching close to the piping.
