  1. How to apply fabric to leather

    I was wondering if it is possible to fuse fabric to leather. Would I need to use glue?I want to have a fabric flap on a leather bag but want to make sure the leather and fabric areas have the same feel, hence my idea of using glue, or fusible webbing to accomplish this. Thank you so very much in advance!

    Mind blown. Amazing. It never ceases to amaze me whet leather can do
  4. First time at motorcycle seats!

    Hey, it takes balls to try something like this. Kudos to you. I would be thrilled to have such a OOAK seat.
  5. Consew 206 RB-3 stitch irregularities

    Here is the saga of my work machine a Consew 206RB-3. We sew leather and vinyl products for motorcycles and it requires a lot of top stitching. I have just returned after a year and am using one of theirs that has been sitting 10 years. (uuuuugh) So, when I want to top stitch it will do some very close stitches and go back to normal. I know it must be the outer foot not touching the throat plate, or making enough contact. I tried a wider foot, to see if it wasn't enough contact and it didn't help. I have played with the presser foot tension and it improves as it goes down, however it is now bottomed out. when the outside foot is all the way down, it won't hold a piece of paper.It honestly just needs a makeover, but that isn't in the budget. Thoughts appreciated. Thank you so very much, Melissa

  7. Has anyone ever turned a charm into a concho?

    No to interrupt, but JB Weld and a chicago screw would work to make a brass pendant a concho? How sturdy would it be? You might have just made my week! TIA! Melissa
