How do you make a vinyl bag?
In this regard, can you sew plastic bags?
Use recycled bags for sewing tricky fabrics. I place the plastic on top of or beneath the fabric and sew normally, stitching through the plastic. The plastic helps the fabric slide smoothly as the stitches are made, and a simple tug easily removes the plastic after the seam is complete.
Similarly, can you sew clear vinyl? Clear vinyl is a fun and durable material to sew with. Since it's thicker than most cloth fabrics, you'll need to prepare your machine to stitch through it. Switch to heavier needles and a strong polyester thread. Adjust your sewing machine's foot so it won't stick on the vinyl.
In this regard, can you sew PVC?
However, if you have an amazing creation in mind that uses PVC fabric, you may have found that sewing with it can be somewhat difficult. Due to the vinyl coating of PVC fabric, pushing it through a traditional sewing machine doesn't quite work so well.
