Ok there is fuzzies everywhere
All I can say is that Mississippiman's tips have been extremely helpful with regards to the velvet.
Ok - Tonight all I did was cut the velvet, and tomorrow I will attempt to attach the velvet to the trim.
Wait.... Did I mention Cut..... No No.... Per Mississippiman's suggestions was to RIP the velvet.
So this evening I swept the bathroom floor, took a swiftie and ran across floor let it dry.
Laid down the Velvet, cut a 2" slit at approx 6" wide" and then my wife walked opposite directions without stopping and just RIPPED a 144.5" length Velvet in 3 seconds.
The straightest line you will every see. I could not see myself cutting a straight line cutting the velvet which would have taken me much longer.
So I can attest to literally "RIP" the velvet. Now I have all my lengths and I can get started with attaching the velvet to the trim.
