Pleather Techniques

Recently I found a great resource for working with pleather.  I love the look that this leather-like material has for finishing purses and accessories, however it can be a bit difficult to work with.  

 The above tutorial wasn't out when I sewed this bag so I sorta just made it up as I went along and ended up just zig-zaging(?) the edges of the hole that the strap goes through since I could not get my pleather to look like it does in the pictures over at her tutorial.  I also did the button hole on the front of the strap so that the end of the strap wasn't showing on the outside.  Because my strap wasn't as wide I also only did one button hole. Although next time I'm going to try the tutorial way!

P.S.  You can find this sample bag for sale in my shop!
