Beautiful rainbow colored, long-pile Plush, fun to work with but wow…. what a fuzz! After cutting the Plush, I carefully shook it to remove excess fuzz.
Because of all the excess fuzz, I haven’t cut three pieces to make a pillow case, but just one long piece. I will make a pillowcase with overlap on the back. Less cutting means less fuzz, and less seams, so the long piles will look much nicer.
Sewing with a straight stitch on my B770QE = aprox. 1 cm from the sides. Now to my serger to lock the seams: this pillow case needs to be washed from time to time, and there is nothing worse then a washing machine full of fuzz….
All is cut along the edges: the knife is really sharp. I have used the line of stitches as a guideline, placing the needle above these stitches so the right side is cut properly. The reason I’ve stitched the layers first by B770QE is, that this prevents the fabrics from shifting while serging. Also the first line of stitches makes the seams much stronger.
Happy stitching from my (now) fuzz-free studio,
