How to Sew Napped Fabrics - a video tutorial from Shiny Happy World

Way back at the beginning of the year I made a video all about choosing fabrics. I warned you to stay away from velvet and other napped fabrics because they can be tricky to sew. Well – no more! If you want to make a velvet bunny for Easter – this is what you need to know. Enjoy!

Here’s Bartholomew Bunny made with a velvet body and shiny tissue lamé ears. 🙂
