I'm told I'm a beginner
Because I know:
Cut the fabric straight
The straight yarn always corresponds to the edges of the fabric (the two sides of the fabric that do not fray are the ones on the sides of the rolls). On the piece of a pattern, the straight line is marked with an arrow that will be placed parallel to the edges in order to cut the piece "in the straight line".
Understand sewing seams (right sides together)
This means that the fabrics to be sewn are placed one on top of the other (fabric A and fabric B). The printed side of fabric A facing the printed side of fabric B. A step often used in sewing!
Mastering the sewing machine :
The straight stitch is the necessary stitch for any sewing project. On your machine the straight point is usually indicated by vertical lines. Be aware that the finer the fabric, the smaller the stitch and the spacing between the stitches. The bartack with reverse gear: The bartack is used to secure the seams at the beginning and end. So the stings won't come undone! Knowing how to overcast, for this step, we use the zigzag stitch that we make on the edge of the fabric so that it does not fray. Tip: the overlock machine allows you to join, overcast the edges and cut off the excess fabric that protrudes.
So that the tissue doesn't move while you sew. You must place the pins perpendicular to the tissue.
Which is used to reinforce certain parts of your sewing project such as the enforme, collar etc... This gives rigidity.
Mastering the iron:
The iron is very useful in sewing! to crush the seam margins, prepare your hems, iron on, iron on your pieces to be applied, make a transfer on your fabrics such as personalization, etc...
Sew a button by hand:
Little trick: double the thread which will give more resistance!
Laying a piping:
The piping is a kind of cord located between two seam edges and protruding slightly.
There are two ways to lay your piping:
-either you insert your piping between two layers of fabric, such as both sides of a cushion.
- Either the piping is sewn on the edge of an unlined garment as for example for a nice finish of a Claudine collar.
Making a Hem
For a nice finish to your sleeves, pants, dress, you need to hem. It is made by sewing your fabric after folding it on itself 1 to 2 cm inside your sewing work.
Sewing with slide stitches or cast-off stitches
It is used to apply one piece on top of another, or to close the opening through which you turned your sewing project over.
Assembly or marker
You will find these indications indicated in your boss. These are the reference points you will need when assembling your sewing project. Tip: cut your notches to 5mm when cutting the fabric on the pattern.
Keep in mind that I could do sewing projects like:
- Baby bonnet
- Bathing cape
