Working on doing a recon on an old velvet bag to new velvet, and my experience with velvet is 0.
It would be nice if you have sewing tips or ideas on how to make this as painless as possible.
Things I need to know would include, but not be limited to:
- How to press seams? What iron setting to use or is ironing out of the question?
- Can you use interfacing, or does this change the velvet flexibility too much?
- Should you use a larger seam allowance for fraying? Is there something I should do to prep for fraying that you would not normally do with other fabrics?
Any information would be most appreciated.
