Sallie Tomato Faux Leather Tour

You know I love to make handbags so I gladly accepted the invitation to join the Sallie Tomato Faux Leather Tour.  Tomorrow on Facebook Live at 1:00 CDT, I’ll show you how I incorporated faux leather into one of my favorite bag patterns.  I went traditional and selected a popular combo of canvas and faux leather. It’s a bag I can carry all summer (and fall!) Of course, I used my embroidery machine to get those perfect corners, add shape to the bag and attach the straps to the body.

I learned quite a few tips on working with faux leather and I’m happy to share them with you.  I’ll walk through the basics: selecting fabrics, needles, thread, stabilizers and hardware and then ramp up the ‘in the hoop’ techniques. Hope to see you there tomorrow at 1:00 on Facebook Live and YouTube Live.

Follow along on the tour, everyday you’ll find a new bag.  I love what already has been revealed on Monday and Tuesday.  Check out all these great bag makers:
