I made the last bags from velvet.
I didn’t transfer the pattern onto velvet ! 🙂
I printed it on paper, I made the sandwich and laid the paper on it and I stitched through paper . The sandwich was too thick so the thread broke often 🙁
The texture is nice and despite of the problems I think I can do this again !
If you ever want to piece something from velvet, cut larger pieces.
For example, if you want to add borders to a square (like I did), cut the borders longer than the square. Stitch the pieces together then adjust the length of the border.
