This week I have some really fun basic sewing projects lined up! New to sewing? Today we're sharing four basic sewing machine stitches and what they are used for. These are the most common stitches that you'll want to learn. Here are some details about what each one can do...
Basting Stitch This stitch is most commonly used as any temporary stitch that you plan to eventually rip out. You can also use the basting stitch to gather and stay stitch.
Straight Stitch This is the most common stitch. You will use the straight stitch for seams, hems and topstitching.
I'll be sharing lots of sewing projects with you this week! Together we'll learn tips for sewing leather, cotton, stretch fabrics and knitwear. We'll be learning basic skills while making adorable things to wear! I can't wait. xo, elsie
