Thank you for visiting! For this, use the washable fabric marker to write on your fabric before piecing it together! Just yesterday I was thinking about how to shorten a zipper so I don't have to buy a new one for my daughters bag and today you supplied a lovely answer.
This was by the oil cloth in the home dec section of the store. Post Comments Atom.
In order to quilt lines that are a little bit further apart, again using the stitched lines as guides, use the quilters ruler to chalk mark additional lines further apart.
Then top-stitch along the zipper strip to keep the vinyl folded under. Turn the laser light on, and move the laser light until it lines up with your needle.
You can test quilting designs with vinyl.
It really helped a friend of mine decide what to do with her quilt. Thanks for your tips! Thank you for sharing! Another twist on this technique is using vinyl to create a negative space design, like in this Boho Placemat Tutorial.

Thank you for these great tips. If the vinyl sticks to the sole plate of your machine, you can place a piece of tissue paper under the vinyl and it will allow the piece to move through your machine easily.

When the quilt is stretched firmly on the frame, any air space created by the batting is crushed by the quilt layers. Change the black cut or write line to a blue marker line in Design Space.
You don't need a big piece of vinyl, half yard or so. That's a great idea and I think I've always shortened from the other end. Do you recommend any types of thread and needles for this job?
