    Thanks for sharing this cute box tute. I'm going to save it. Gotta finish another project but I'd really like to make a couple of these.

I had to do another project for my hubby and I purchased the foot and it make a 100% difference. However I was using it for a much larger project, so maybe using it in smaller pieces works easier. Not sure. Here is a pic of what I used it for.

    When I sew vinyl, I put a piece of cheap-o tissue paper on top. I sew thru it and then tear it off. I usually have a big pack I buy at the dollar store before each Christmas.

    That looks perfect for a basket liner for the bike Santa brought me. Thanks!

    Found mine at a Dollar Tree store....several different sizes and also different colors....works for me too........I should buy a few more, save for next year and fill with gifts......better than wrapping or bagging.........and usable afterwards.......

    You can also place some tape on the bottom of a foot to make it glide easier over the vinyl.
