So I have this ongoing issue with my materials. I often use velvet (or velvety) fabric on my plushies , especially when I use synthetic fabrics. There are always tiny tiny fibers that go flying everywhere . I've tried taping up the edges of the fabrics before I cut them , I've tried keeping a fan going to blow the particles away , I've tried wearing a dust mask (which works, except I get real tired of wearing it when sewing for hours on end) . It's not the biggest problem in the world , I guess, but it bothers me to look down and see my hands and clothes and work area literally covered in tiny cotton or polyester fibers . Does anyone else have this problem ?
What do you do about it?
