The Teflon foot helps glide over the leather while attaching the lining!

The machine did not struggle whatsoever with the topstitching or the straps attached a short row of stitches on the topstitch line of the bag to add more security. I love Chicago screws and rivets, but stitching is the most secure way to keep things in place!
