Hello All. This is my first posting. Thank you everyone for all the the tips and tricks from past discussions that have answered my questions so far and made my sewing easier!
I am attempting to sew clear vinyl to neoprene. The neoprene is the bottom layer and the vinyl is on top. I am using a Teflon foot and a 75/11 HS needle. The top thread is clear Sulky and the bobbin is Wooly nylon. I taped a thin sheet of Teflon to the machine with a hole cut out for the presser feet so the neoprene doesn’t stick to the machine. I am trying to stitch a zigzag close to the edge to look like fake serging.
The zigzag stitching is somewhat inconsistent. Is it because the clear fine Sulky thread is a different weight than the bobbin thread? I have tried tear away stabilizer but it distorts the stitch pattern when I tear it off. Has anyone tries the dissolve-in-the-wash type stabilizer?
Any suggestions appreciated! I am willing to experiment with thread tension, needles, threads…anything. Except buying a serger 🙂
