It looks to me like you're stretching one piece of the vinyl as you're sewing. Are you trying to follow witness marks? Here is what it should look like. I make relief cuts on one side of curved seams to let the fabric overlap before top stitching.

Is one side plain and the other side has sew foam?

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
