I'm making a skirt and a messenger bag using grey canvas and adding some color with topstitching using hot pink Jeans Stitch thread so the TS really shows. I thought you might like to see the dramatic difference between this Jeans Stitch thread and all-purpose thread. It's pretty amazing!
Here are tips for using this heavy thread:
- use a size 100/16 topstitch machine needle - these needles say "topstitch" across the front
- use all-purpose thread in the bobbin
- lengthen your stitch to 3.5+
- turn on "needle down" if your machine has the option
