ChalkBoard Fabrics

Cure the chalkboard fabric: Lay the fabric right side up, and rub the entire surface with chalkboard chalk, first in the horizontal and then in the vertical direction. Clean the fabric with a damp cloth; then repeat the process. Use a wool setting on your iron and a dry press cloth; press from the wrong side to remove wrinkles. Press seams using a wooden pressing tool, such as the Little Wooden Iron. Stitch with a Teflon Foot for best results. If you use a standard presser foot, use tissue paper or wax paper between the fabric and the presser foot for a smoother glide. Use a size 80 Universal Needle. Pin with Wonder Clips or double-sided basting tape. Set the sewing machine for a longer stitch length, 3.5 mm. Shorter stitches weaken the fabric. Select all-purpose thread for both the needle and the bobbin. Use regular chalkboard chalk or Chalk Markers to write on the chalkboard fabric. (Avoid sidewalk chalk.)
