Start With The Basics
Let's start slow and simple. These are a few items you need before you can start to create your first masterpiece.
Measure Twice, Cut Once
Many designs end up messy, or imprecise because not every measurement is perfect.
Create & Draw Out Your Design
After measuring out the item you want to make, the next step is getting everything ready for the sewing machine.
Pin & Sew
As you mark the fabric, you can pin the pattern paper to the fabric. It is also useful to pin the back and front of your fabric before sewing.
Sewing Machine and Tools
It is possible to create your masterpiece by hand, but these tools are available to make your life much easier.
