Sewing Tricks Every Crafter Needs to Know
Fill a pincushion with steel wool to make your own needle-sharpening pincushion.
Washi tape is invaluable in the sewing room! Mark fabric, use it to make bias binding, mark out seams, etc. It’s 1/4″ wide, so it’s a handy seam measuring tool!
Create gathers in fabric using the cheating method (aka the corded zig zag method). Simply sew a large zig zag stitch over a piece of yarn, and use the yarn to gather the fabric before using a straight stitch to sew the gathers in place.
Tired of pinning fabrics? Make your own heavy duty fabric weights using washers and a hot glue gun. Genius!
Create your own hemline tool out of cardstock. It’ll help you iron perfectly straight hemlines and folds every time.
