any tips on sewing with bamboo velour

Had my first attempt with it today... yeah it wasnt such a good first time. Is there anything I should know that will keep it from slipping all over the place? I used a serger and it just was not pretty. My sewing machine wasnt too too bad. I am using a ball point needle, but other than that I am not sure what else!

Maybe try a stretch needle and lighten your pressure foot tension. Good luck!
