Video: What a Crush (Velvet Crush, That Is)

Video Length: 5:02
Produced by: Gary Junken

Ever wonder how crushed velvet was made? (Nope, the stork doesn't deliver it.) As a companion to "Adventures in Velvet" in Sew Stylish: Gifts to Make, Christine Jonson, owner of, shows us how to make crushed velvet fabric from scratch.

All that's needed is rayon or rayon-blend fabric, your iron, and a Teflon iron shoe for your iron. Watch the video to see how it's done.
