Help please. Velcro
I am altering a net book sleeve to use with iPad. I am adding a simple divider with a place to put the stylus, the microfiber cleaning cloth and possibly a cord. All great so far.
Now to fasten into sleeve I opted for Velcro only I'm needing to reuse rough sections scone I have none & can't afford it right now. The strips are stuck (orig sticky type) to a lightweight stretch knit. I'm sewing onto a wide nylon ribbon. I have a gently used denim needle to use and discard after. I can use a zipper foot but I have another adjustable foot that might work better for me.
So the questions:
1) what kind of stitch? I've used zig zag or satin for most everything so far. Seems to make thestitchlines smoother and less likely to scratch the device screen.
2) because it is sticky back there is no line/edge to sew in. Can I zigzag along the edge (on&off the Velcro)? I've already cut the other fabric to the very edge...smart thing would have been to leave a border and sew that to the ribbon.
Thanks for help, insights & resources!
