|Sewing Quick Tips:
If you need to duplicate a pattern, try using waxed paper. It’s lightweight, see-through, and
most of us have it on hand in our cupboard. And if you need larger pieces, just tape it
When hand-basting finer fabrics, use a fine, silk thread. It’s less likely to leave noticeable holes
behind in your fabric once it’s removed.
When sewing lightweight fabrics, don’t backstitch to secure the thread ends. This can cause
your fabric to pucker. Instead, as you near the edge of your fabric, switch to a very fine
stitch, then continue stitching to the end of your fabric. The finer stitch should be enough to
keep your thread end from coming loose.
