    Sewing tyvek

    I'm planning to make a cover for a refectix sleeping pad for my dog! I'm thinking of using tyvek for the bottom & fleece for the top ! What thread should I use?

    Polyester and wide stitch.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Hadn't given much thought to the stitch length! Glad you brought it to my attention!

    Dental floss! Thats what I used to make a tyvek stuff sack. I'm sure if it would wind up well and dispense properly on a bobbin though. Anyone ever try it on an injector?
