Marking tulle and No-See-Um
Picked up some black tulle for practice sewing with and making some prototypes. Found out the Sharpie and chalk were not useful in marking the material. What do people use?
1st project was couple pairs of tarp snakeskins. Ended up just eyeballing the lines to cut. I'm a klutz when it comes to sewing, but this material is significantly easier to deal with than silnylon. ~1.5hr to sew up couple pairs. ~1.25oz/pair vs. ~3oz/pair for the silynylon set. For the bug sock and mossie under barrier prototypes a number of curved cuts will be required. Definitely will need to mark out the pattern on the material.
Considering the lighter weight & lower costs if this stuff is durable I may not ever buy No-See-Um again.
