I have a purse that I finished a few weeks ago, and I STILL haven't seamed it up yet. If, after watching the video countless times, mattress stitich isn't really working for me, will sewing it up on the sewing machine or by hand do the same thing? Or should I just not give up on the mattress stitch?
I'm doing this for a friend, and I'm nervous about it turning out really sloppy :(

The mattress stitch really is the neatest finishing technique once you get the hang of it. Keep trying! Maybe make up two little stockinette swatches so you can practice before you tackle the real thing. It really is worth it.
