Ok, my little girl has almost completely demolished her highchair cushion & I'm going to make a new one for her (or at the very least re-cover the one she has). I've bought the vinyl (hot pink & silver, cool!), but I'm a little intimidated about sewing w/it. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for making this easier than I think it's going to be? TIA!!  Grin

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

If it sticks to your pressure foot when you sew, just layer a peice of tissue between it and your machine (you can even use TP).  You'll probably want a heavier needle too.  If you can get beyond this... then vinyl is really kinda cool too work with.

Thanks for the info!!

I'll make sure to try the tissue. Fortunately I already had a heavier needle. I'm really excited about working w/vinyl, I bought a little more than I thought I might need just so I could use it in other projects.
