Sewing Velvet


Sewing Velvet
• Needles: Stretch velvet use size 11 ball point needle; woven velvets use size 11 universal/regular point needle
• Use 100% cotton or silk thread
• Because velvet has a nap, use an Even Feed / Walking Foot to help prevent the layers from shifting, and hold fabrics taut as you sew
• Pin the seam and stitch in the direction of the nap
• Steam fabric instead of ironing which leaves permanent marks in the fabric. To steam laying down on the ironing board, use another piece of velvet on the bottom to help prevent pile from crushing
