And when I say "loosened up", I do not mean that the stitching came out. That's all in tack. I get the feeling that the vinyl stretched after being twisted and turned under the sewing machine arm a few times. This vinyl cost $4 a yard at a local fabric store. I compared it to the SMS vinyl that I have and their is a big difference. The SMS vinyl is thicker and doesn't stretch like this crap does.
