For best results, use a sharp #70 needle. This needle is made for lightweight fabrics and will sew smoothly without puncturing big holes in the fabric. It may also help to use thin paper such as tracing paper or wax paper to put under the fabric when sewing. This will prevent the fabric from getting stuck under the pallet and into the dog feed.
To secure the thread, back stitch a 1/4 of an inch at the beginning and the end. When back stitching, the length should be set at 1 millimeter. For the rest of the stitching, adjust the length back to it’s normal setting which is about 3 millimeters.
