I ran across this beautiful lady that has some fabulous sewing tutorials on YouTube. She has wonderful tutorials and they are fun to watch. I love her accent. While I am busy elsewhere cleaning, gardening, and having guests, I thought you might enjoy a few tutorials. Come on into my sewing room for these great videos...
Part 1: Prepare Your Pattern
Pattern Pieces Onto Fabric
I really like Astar's Tutorials but will say what I personally do that may be different. Not that any way is wrong, but just to show the difference.
**1.) I work with my fabric right side facing me and wrong sides together. You need to press your fabric so that your selvages (the finished edges meet).
**2.) I use a yard stick or sewing tape measure to measure and set my pattern pieces arrows straight of grain...I love her idea of the little tape measure and may just have to try that!
