When working with muslin fabrics, keep the following in mind:
- Use a fine needle and a sewing machine with a smooth presser foot to avoid holes in the fabric.
- Avoid ironing the fabric too much as this can damage the smooth surface. If you must iron the fabric, use a damp cloth and a low heat.
- Use an overlock machine or a zigzag stitch to neaten the edges of the muslin and prevent them from fraying.
- If you want to dye the muslin, be aware that it loses colour quickly and it is advisable to make a test run.
- Muslin is a thin and light fabric, so it is important to adjust the processing techniques so that it does not tear or shrink.
It is important to note that there are different types of muslin fabrics and that they can be processed differently. It is advisable to read the care instructions before you start processing.
