How to work with the nap:

Sew Ideas - - Contents -

First de­cide which side of the fab­ric must be at the top end. The nap must run from left to right. If you slide your fin­gers against the nap (from right to left) and it makes a ‘bruise’ on the fab­ric, you know it is cor­rect. Now mark the top end and lie the fab­ric on a flat ta­ble that has a per­fect square or rec­tan­gu­lar shape. Bring the cor­ner of the fab­ric in line with the cor­ner of the ta­ble and make sure the nap lines are in line with the ta­ble edge.
