Tips for sewing velvet fabric with a machine
Sewing velvet can be tricky for beginners!
It slips while stitching, mars easily from mistakes, and makes a fuzzy mess in your sewing space.
However, velvet is beautifully luxurious and worth learning to sew! Here are a few tips for working with velvet fabric.
1. Don't ever iron the right side of the fabric.
2. Avoid pinning pattern pieces.
3. Use a walking foot, nonstick foot, or roller foot.
4. Stitch seams and darts directionally with the pile when possible.
