Oh no, you didn't sew this with a regular sewing machine foot?! D'oh. There is a special foot for that made of teflon (it's white plastic), it allows leather and plastic (aka sticky fabrics) to slide under the foot without issue.

Now I am doubly impressed though, that you did such a wonderful job even without the proper tools. Very nice, impressively completed and thoroughly enviable. I'm tempted to give it a go myself, I think it turned out great.

Haha, yeah... I'm pretty self taught so I'm uneducated about different presser feet and what they do.  Also, I just looked through the feet that came with machine and I don't think I have anything like you've described.  I should probably go pick one of those suckers up!  Thanks for letting me know, so future purses will look even better!

This one looks perfect, it's just the process that probably sucked more than it could have Wink.
Machines don't usually come with that foot, it's true, but it's worth picking one up if you're going to work with leather or plastic. I just spent over a hundred bucks on special feet that do all sorts of nifty stuff. They save time and allow for so much creativity, I can't wait to try them all out!

This is just gorgeous. I love it, and it's even more special because it's upcycled. You did a wonderful job.
