sewing vinyl

Hi i'm a teacher who sews in my spare time. I am now doing seats for a motorcycle for the first time and I have not sewed vinyl very much but I'm giving it a try. How do I keep my vinyl from puckering?

Welcome to Hotrodders

The introduction forum is not for tech questions. Not many members read the introduction forum

I moved your question to interior forum. Some sharp folks here will answer shortly

Just like you keep any other fabric from puckering, put the two pieces together and let the machine do the work without pulling or pushing in either direction.
