Can I use poly ggr? Or do i need to use the nylon ggr? Also, How do i tell the dif between sil-polyester and silnylon? I thought I had silnylon but i have been reading posts about sil-polyester. Are the two interchangeable?
Would the edges be easier to sew using bias tape instead of grosgrain? The gg is having a tendency to "bunch" on me and I read somewhere that the bias tape is better when used for a curved edge. Am I doing something wrong or is it just a PITA?
Yes, it would be. Bias tape threads are on the diagonal so when you go around a curve the fabric will stretch and adjust itself to form to the curve. Most of what you can buy locally is Poly/cotton but someone here found and has ordered 100% polyester bias tape from somewhere. It may have been TeeDee on the HH Clone he made.
