Sewing Quick Tips:

Tip #1: Read through your entire pattern instructions before you start sewing your project. This way, you can
familiarize yourself with all of the steps involved, and you may even find that you can rearrange the order of

the steps for greater efficiency.

Tip #2: To prevent bulk when running elastic through a waistband casing, butt the ends of the elastic together
instead of overlapping them. You can do this by taking a short piece of wide ribbon and stitching both ends of
the elastic to it.

Note: If a project below includes a printable pattern, you’ll see a “p” next to its title. If a project doesn’t include
a pattern template, it likely consists of simple fabric shapes (like squares and rectangles) that you can easily
measure and cut yourself. And note that some projects may be designed for a specific type of sewing machine.
However, if a project you like calls for, say, complex embroidery stitches and you have just a simple zigzag
machine, you can try experimenting with a satin stitch, hand-embroidering a design, or adding purchased
embellishments instead.
Sewing Quick Tip:

Before applying fusible interfacing to your garment piece, test it first by applying it to a scrap
of your fabric. This way, you’ll be able to make sure that the interfacing has given your fabric
the drape and feel you’re looking for, that the interfacing has bonded properly to your fabric
(that the timing and iron temperature are correct), and that the interfacing adhesive hasn’t
melted through to the other side of your fabric.
