Velvet Standards - Getting Lillies Together

I sewed the flags in the middle. I had to baste them carefully and I used a walking foot. I ironed the seam and I also folded the lower edge near the seam up.

Sometimes, I'm really desperate about velvet. I basted the three free sides of the square. I often made a backstitch to hold the fabric more tightly in place.

I used my walking foot again. You can see that I stitched near the line I made before when sewing fringe on.

And when I finished? I moved half a cm. If you had any advice on how to sew with velvet, I'd be pleased to hear.

I'll try to finish this piece as if it was sewn OK and see what it will turn into. I'm considering sewing the next flag in hand :¨-(
