In this machine embroidery tutorial, I will show you my last embroidery project – 3d flowers on a pullover. I know that embroidery is always in style and big fashion houses use machine embroidery in their creations. So, if I have a good embroidery machine I can make something beautiful every day and embellish whatever I want.
In this sewing tutorial I want to show you how to use a twin needle – a very simple tool that expands the capabilities of even the most ordinary sewing machine.
The twin needle is made of the two needles that are attached to a single crossbar.
It produces two rows of stitching on the topside and a zigzag stitch (well, kind of) on the back. It’s often used for hemming garments made from knit fabric – the stitch looks similar to the hem stitch on a T-shirt.
In this YouTube video tutorial you will find answers on these questions: how do you stop seams from fraying with an overcast stitch, how do you finish a seam with zig zag, how do you overcast, is overcasting the same as overlocking, does my sewing machine have an overlock stitch? Learn types of seam finishes, types of overcast presser feet and how to overlock stitch on regular sewing machine.
When I first heard about foundation paper piecing from my friend and saw the quilt she made I thought that paper piecing is complicated and time-consuming. How to sew on paper? What is it?
But I was intrigued for a while and in the end, decided to try this method. And I am glad I did! It’s not complicated at all, it’s actually quite simple and allows to make blocks with the greatest accuracy.
This is my first attempt to make a zippered pouch. And I honestly thought that this is the easiest thing ever to sew, it’s such a little thing, right? But I was mistaken. The zippered pouch with lining turned out a pretty complex thing to make. Yes, you can make it in 30 min if you don’t mind the funky dented corners at the top of the pouch. But I wanted my corners to look very neat. So what is the secret to making a pouch without dented corners? Read the tutorial to find out.
In this tutorial, I want to show you how to machine binding a quilt. I know there are many posts on quilt binding but I am doing it a little bit differently than what I have seen. I bind a quilt with my serger and it’s really fast, easy and accurate.
Although engineers have included many subtle safety features into modern sewing machines, you are still dealing with an electric machine that punches a sharp needle at a rapid pace.
As indoors hobbies go, sewing is still very safe, not to mention highly rewarding and productive, but only if you take care to include precautions on a regular basis.
In this video sewing tutorial I want to talk about a seam guide – why you need one (or a few actually), how to use it correctly, what types of seam guides exist, how you can make it yourself and where to buy the best.
Invisible stitch (slip stitch, or ladder stitch, or blind hem stitch) is a very popular hand sewing stitch and knowing how to do invisible stitch by hand is really helpful as you can prolong the life of many things (garments, pillows, soft toys, even furniture) and even save money on alterations if you can easily repair holes in expensive leather products, for example.
Every sewing project starts with taking measurements. It’s even more important to take your own body measurements for sewing clothes. In this video sewing tutorial I’ll present how to take the body measurements that you’ll need regardless if you sew with one of the available commercial patterns or draft a pattern yourself.
