Frequent question: Can you sew through Velcro?

What needle should I use to sew Velcro?

Avoid stiff VELCRO® tape, which is difficult to handle. Instead, look for a soft hook and loop tape that’ll flex with your fabric. Use a universal needle size 14 or 16 or a denim needle. Use strong thread like a polyester thread that won’t break.

Does Velcro adhere to fabric?

VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics is an easy to apply peel and stick fastener that provides a permanent bond to fabrics with no sewing, gluing or ironing required. Fabric bond withstands laundering. Our durable VELCRO® Brand closures can be reused hundreds of times.

Which side of Velcro goes on fabric?

With steam activated, heat steam iron to highest setting. Remove VELCRO® brand logo release liner from back of loop tape. Position adhesive side on fabric. Place fabric, fastener-side down, on pressing surface.

Can you sew on iron on Velcro?

Velcro can be sewn onto fabrics but convenient fusible Velcro tape can be ironed onto fabrics instead. This not only makes installation easy but it also creates a firm bond between the Velcro and fabric.

What fabric does Velcro not stick to?

You can even use this with wool socks to create sock puppets for children. But if you plan to use cotton socks, you’ll need both sides of the hook-and-loop Velcro dots to attach features to the cotton, as Velcro’s hook side won’t adhere directly to non-tooth fabrics such as cotton.
