Recently I've started sewing with faux leather. I sew with a pretty basic home machine and have come across some challenges.
I generally sew with my walking foot attachment. This helps tremendously with the faux leather as you'll see with some sample stitches I did below.
However when sewing a zip I need to switch to my zipper foot.. As can be seen on the zipper pocket below, I didn't get great results with the faux leather.
Doing some research online, a teflon foot is sometimes recommended for leather or vinyl sewing. I don't have a teflon foot and it probably wouldn't help with sewing zippers as I need the narrow zipper foot. (or maybe they have teflon zipper feet? I dunno??)
So I went and found me some teflon tape at a hardware store.
