PLEASE NOTE, WHEN SEWING VINYL, PLEATHER OR REAL LEATHER, USE A LONGER STITCH LENGTH THAN YOU WOULD WITH REGULAR FABRIC.
TOO MANY CLOSE TOGETHER HOLES CAN MAKE THIS KIND OF FABRIC RIP.
So. now the sides are sewn up.
This vinyl is much nicer and softer than the other, but STILL any vinyl is somewhat stiff and sticky, so these straps are made with topstitching from the outside, instead of sewing inside out and then turning.
Hope gives you some ideas of how to handle sewing with pleater and real leather.
