If you are going to sew bags, or stitch with heavy fabrics and do any layer-tastic sewing, you need to invest in a walking foot.
With my walking foot I can stitch all fabrics from fine tana lawn through to sticky vinyl and leather and, AND it makes sewing through horrible chunky layers so much easier.
Having webbing on hand allow you to go when the creative moment strikes!
Always have black or navy on Hand but now I use white when covering with a co coordinating fabric.
I also love the pink and turquoise and often add a Gross-grain ribbon down the center to give it a unique finish.
Webbing is commonly found made from cotton, nylon, polyester.
All webbing will unravel if the ends are not secured or finished in some way.
When cutting a length of any trim or webbing, it is advisable to wrap the area that will be cut in tape and cut through the tape so that some tape remains on each end.
A natural fiber such as cotton will need to be secured with stitching, such as a zigzag seam finish.
I finish the strap ends with a wide and short zigzag stitch (effective, looks great and is super quick!)
Artificial fibers such as nylon, polyester cutting- gently melt the ends with an open flame that is run across the edge of the webbing - this secures and stops any raveling.
The melted material is not sewing machine needle friendly!
Be careful to avoid hitting any melted fibers with your sewing machine needle.
