First a few tips when sewing with Cuddle Fabric.
- Cuddle fabric does shed. Shake the fabric out once you get it to free loose ‘fur’. If you have a hand vac for your sewing room use it to pick up excess fur around your sewing area or use a lint roller to pick up fibers.
- This fabric does shift, but takes well to pinning so don’t hesitate to pin to keep layers from shifting.
- Use a ball point needle when sewing Cuddle fabric.
- Don’t use an iron without a pressing cloth, if you do use an iron keep the temperature low.
