Blind-Stitches Foamed Channels-Upholstery Basics
STRAIGHT INSIDE-HIDDEN STITCH(BLIND STITCH) FOAMED CHANNELS/PLEATS As in former related tutorial' to do these designs, three layers of (vinyl/leather, foam and a backing cloth, are also fastened by sewing them together. The difference is that the 'sewing' is done on the reverse or wrong side of vinyl/leather/ or fabric materials. There are three well known methods to perform these designs : 1. Standard way to do the channels : To do this procedure, the material on top (vinyl/leather) should be folded and sewn to the foam and backing cloth every time we do a channel. 2. Square foamed channels : the foam is cut in long rectangular 'sliced pieces' : The material on top is folded and sewn directly to the backing cloth...the already cut rectangular foam pieces are put in, every time we do a channel. The channels have a nice square 3. Reinforced inside-hidden stitch : Sewing on top first, then re-sew them on the reverse where the 'backing cloth' goes. The sewing for these channels are stronger and obvious, more durable. I want to notice that these foamed designs are labour-intensive jobs, and more expensive than on-top stitches foamed designs.

A Plastic Piece Wrapped in Leather - Auto Upholstery
Because of the position of its fibers, the leather material has more elasticity in one direction (to the left and right sides) than the other direction upwards and downwards (from the head to the tail) that is stiffer. It is important to add that the stretching is not evenly if we scrutinize all over the surface of our leather hide (e.g back and butt areas are stiffer than belly areas). Leather does not behave as vinyl that it stretches evenly along its stretchy side. Taking advantage of this little knowledge, we can mold leather onto some pieces which need to be customized with this beautiful material. In the case I show in the video, I have decided to do it one piece; but to ease the job, we could cut and sew in some required parts...it depends on the upholsterer's/owner's decision. I hope You Find this Video Useful ! Cesar
