Tips for Sewing with Handwoven Fabrics
I'm hoping people have some tips/tricks to share for sewing with handwovens. I make stuffed creatures, and in the past I have just used standard cotton fabrics. I've been starting to experiment with weaving my own fabrics to make them out of (which I think would be incredible), but the problem is that the handwovens are much looser in weave and I haven't successfully found a way to help them hold up under the stress of sewing, turning, and stuffing. I have read a few articles but have yet to find anything that has really helps. Does anyone have any ideas for me?
