I use "invisible" thread, either clear or smoke-colored in my needle. This allows me to sew the velcro on securely without the thread breaking every few stitches. A top stitching needle would be the ideal needle to use because the thread is protected as it goes in and out of the velcro, especially the "rough" side or loopy side of the velcro. In the photo, you might be able to see that I was able to completely secure the velcro in place without the needle thread breaking at all. Stuff like that makes sewing so much more pleasurable I think :)

Good tip. I use a quilting needle when sewing velcro, which also prevents thread problems.
