I am making handbags, using Timtex interfacing for some and craft foam (Foamie) as the interfacing for some smaller bags. (After taking apart enough purses to see what the tricks are, I’ve discovered a lot of foam and sadly, glue.) Anyway, I am sewing thru a a lining, fabric and the foam, in that order. If the foam is on the bottom, the feed dog pulls it thru no problem. If it’s on the top, the presser foot wants nothing to do with it…it just doesn’t slide or feed properly. Bummer, b/c when I put these sections together, I do have to sew a part where I have there’s a layer of foam on the top as well as the bottom (with the fabric sandwiched between).
Help please. I know I’m not the first one to be sewing with foam!
