2) get the correct needle for that fabric type
For example with spandax, I know my machine can take it. I need a zig zag stitch and my blue tipped (spandex type) needle.
I'd be wanting to make it out of either spandex or Lycra. So if I buy a machine rated for it and a blue tipped needle, I should be okay?
