Sewing With Tulle
ITEM # 1365876P38
DESCRIPTION +

Sewing with Tulle

  • Tulle comes in 54” or 108” widths.
  • Use pattern weights when cutting to keep this lightweight fabric from shifting.
  • Layering the tulle on top of plain tissue paper then pinning it before cutting helps control the tulle. Simply pull away the tissue paper when finished.
  • Cut tulle while still folded from the bolt for easy straight edges.
  • Cut tulle with a rotary cutter, ruler and mat.
  • If you need to iron the tulle, use a cool iron and a press cloth over the tulle. Tulle is made of 100% nylon, which has a very low melting temperature.
  • Use a thin needle such as a size 70.
  • Use a cotton-covered thread rather than all polyester to avoid excess static.
  • Tulle edges will not unravel; there is no need to finish them.
  • Sew with a short straight stitch.
  • Stitch tulle slowly to avoid puckering or gathering.
  • If the tulle is sticking together from static electricity, spray it with anti-static spray.
  • When sewing a seam in tulle, stabilize the seam area with a layer of tissue paper and when finished sewing just tear it away.
  • To avoid catching the tulle on the machine foot when sewing, use a roller foot or place tape on the bottom of the foot .
