Nap (fabric) –
Nap is a term to describe the texture/sheen of fabrics such as fur, velvet, satin, or other fabrics where the fabric does not have the same appearance in every direction.
One-way prints are treated like napped fabrics during layout and cutting.
Cutting napped fabrics requires all pattern pieces to be cut in the same direction.
I am a sewing teacher and cosplayer as well as mom of two boys. I have been sewing since I was 6 years and never stopped. Sewing is my art and my passion, which is why I love to teach.
