I’m hoping someone can advise me on my project.
I have been making leggings (the leggings are made of 94 percent cotton, 6 percent elastane) and sewing heart patches on the new out of vinyl/faux leather material.
I have made many of these but every so often, I have to replace one because the seams rip the leggings around where the heart was sewn. It is like the vinyl/faux leather is not stretchy enough, so someone who bends their knees alot puts a lot of pressure on the stitches and then it rips the cotton/elastane legging material.
Currently I am seeking any advice or suggestions such as;
1. Is there any other way of attaching these patches PERMANENTLY and must be washable so that they do not rip. Ex; fabric glue.
2. I look into fusible web, but seems that you cannot use it with vinyl. What non-fray materials can I use with fusible web? Does ultrasuede work? And is fusible web fairly flexible while still being permanent and durable?
3. Are there any other iron-on solutions that will not be plastic or papery feeling?
Thank you for any help you can offer me!
