Yes, can SEW on Clear Scraps Acrylic

I used to sew...way back in the day.  I made dresses for myself in college.  I even made DH a shirt when we were dating.  And I LOVED sewing my kids' hallowe'en costumes!  But now my sewing machine is purely for scrapbooking on layouts, cards and everything I can fit under the pressure foot...which, by the way, definitely includes Clear Scraps Acrylic!

Here are my tips:

*I use a regular needle, with a little bit stronger than usual thread but not necessarily the heaviest thread around. 
*I sew slowly and backstitch my ends, even sometimes at corners so that it's a little bit stronger. 
*I clean out the eye of my needle after every project - teeny bits of acrylic residue build up in the eye and that's usually what rips my thread as I'm sewing.

That's it.  Simple.  Clear Scraps acrylic doesn't crack or break and unless you're pulling too hard on the acrylic while you're sewing, it won't break your needles either.  Slow and steady!
