There's always one! Still, looks like a good time, better than we have been having.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Great backdrop for your car. My son's up there now, beautiful time of year.

Just finishing up a truck seat! Will be doing the same French Seam with tan leather on my Roadster upholstery soon! I kind of like the cup holders in the seat! RoarsRods

I really like that seam. I looks classy.

Thanks all for your compliments! There’s no cutting corners now on my final Roadster build! As far as Ed’s question with the 5 to 6 stitches per inch I would say an estimate yes! The machine settings would be maxed out on 8! The closer the stitches the more able to rip and tear easily! Doing all brown thread same color as my brown square weave carpet! Here’s my sample Holden Lion logo embroidered on my tan leather sample! Plus sample #1944 tan cloth roof top material! As always need to have a backing material for stronger results! Also the embroidery design for the top of both door panels and the rear trunk divider panel was created from this picture of my lower drivers side Holden Lion with Rock logo! Plus would like all the Aussies to be proud of my Roadster build! Here’s a YouTube video for French Seem on leather!

This woman makes it look so easy, I guess you do too, RoarsRods! I got a little chuckle how the narrator pauses, just for a fraction of a second when he says " French...seam".
