#TuesdayTips

Sewing in a straight line... It seems so easy! But it never is. What is topstitch? Top stitch is a row of stitches on the right side of your fabric that is visible to the eye. It could be for decorative purposes, or added to help a seam sit flat. It's also that thing that I bang on about in Sewing classes because I think it just makes everything look neater. And if it's wobbly it makes the difference to whether something looks professional or clumsy. There are a number of things that can affect you sewing in a straight line, your fabric (if it's a slippy fabric that veers off) your tension (lets face it, incorrect tension affects everything doesn't it!) Whether you have a smooth line to sew

#TuesdayTips

Just a little tip today, but it might change your life....or at the very least the speed you unpick stitches. We've all got an Unpicker (or Seam ripper) in our sewing kits. Those dreaded things that you use to unpick the stitches of any seams that have gone wrong. They're useful but sometimes it takes ages to get anywhere. Here is a handy website page showing you a few different uses for the Unpicker. Not only can it be used to un pick dodgy stitches, it can be used to tear through whole seams and can be used as a way to rip holes in the fabric to make things like button holes easier. One thing it doesn't show, is that if you turn the Unpicker upside down (so the red ball is underneath the s

#SewingClass - Messenger Bag

Tonight was my First Evening Sewing Class of 2020! 🤩 I even welcomed two new ladies, it’s always nice to have a new addition to the group. We spent the evening planning, measuring and drafting the pattern for our messenger bags. After interfacing the fabric, we made a start on cutting out in the actual bag fabric. All In all, a busy night! We’ve got vintage florals, corduroy and liberty prints and flamingoes! I can’t wait to get to work on them next week! 💕✂️ 🧵 Ps- the last 2 photos are the types of bags available to make. #smallbusiness #handmade #sewing #eveningclasses
