Sewing Tips

Here are some tips on using pleather:

  • If you can't find pleather trim, cut strips ¾” or 1” wide out of a non-stretch pleather fabric.
  • Test sew two pieces of pleather trim together to determine the best needle, stitch settings, and tension for your machine.
  • Use pins or a small piece of double sided tape to hold pleather together.
  • When sewing the pleather together, you may need to use something as a stabilizer. Tissue paper works great. Note: I did not need stabilizer for the pleather trim, but I did for raw pleather.
