HOW to apply Vellutex
It is an easy-to-use material – cut the fabric slightly larger than the stitched design, hoop up the garment securing the applique fabric with either sticky tape or temporary adhesive spray, MSA 1100. Once stitched, remove from the hoop, make an initial cut, and carefully pull away the excess fabric.
Digitising for tear away Vellutex
create the design using two outer edge stitched borders placed 1-2 mm apart. The internal border can be with a running or decorative pattern stitch i.e. feather stitch, and must be 1.5 mm wide. The outer edge must be a satin or Steil boarder with zig zag underlay. Increase stitch density slightly from 0.4 mm to 0.35 mm. Use Polyneon No. 40 with a matching color to make the stitching invisible, or with a contrasting color to create a pattern, a play of color.
