What You'll Need
Sewing machine
Upholstery thread

Netting and nylon webbing is a well-used fabric in many textile products, and, from time to time, you may be called upon to mend or sew netting and nylon. But don't be intimidated by it's flimsy facade, with some heavy-duty equipment, sewing together webbing can be a breeze.

Step 1 - Combine Layers of Netting

Pile the layers of nylon netting and put the needle into one of the edges of the netting.

Step 2 - Stitch the Netting

Use your sewing machine to stitch the edges of your netting together, you should be using a looped stitch. Use durable upholstery thread so that the mesh will stay together when the net curtains are opened and closed. Go slowly with your machine on the netting, if you move too quickly, you may kill your motor.

Once you've finished stitching around the outside of the netting you should use an overhand knot to secure your thread and prevent it from coming undone. If there is any excess thread, trim it with some scissors.

Step 3 - More Stitching

Stitch once more around the edges of the nylon to ensure that the layers will stay in place. You might need to stitch around the netting several times to hold it securely because it is much more delicate than other types of material and fabric.
