For best results with faux fur we use a ‘walking foot’ machine which pulls through both sides at the same time – if you don’t have a walking foot machine, you will have perfect results if you pin, pin, pin – then pin again! - To keep the 2 sides of the fur from slipping.
We recommend pinning on both sides of where you are going to sew – sew in the centre of the 2 rows of pins and use a denim needle if possible (size 14/16 is perfect ) as they are much less likely to break. Faux Fur is very forgiving but does become very thick at the seams. An ordinary needle is fine – just be prepared to ‘walk’ the machine through any thick seams.
