I'm new to this board, although I've posted in the clothing section before, this project is not clothing related so I didn't think I should put it there! I'm after a little advice on how to sew this custom fabric I'm making for someone. It's gonna be used for a motorbike seat cover (think its a chopper but not sure)
Here are some photos of what I've done so far. Be warned - this may make your eyes (or your computer screen) go funny! The pencil lines will be rubbed off after sewing.
I have glued the black vinyl diamonds onto the white vinyl fabric to hold them in place but now I need to sew them. It needs to be really strong to withstand use. I was planning on using a zigzag stitch, with upholstery thread. But this would make more holes in the fabric thus weakening it, maybe a straight stitch would be better. Also any tips for sewing vinyl? I will be using a domestic singer machine if I zigzag it or an industrial if I do it straight stitch.
