- If you are unable to see the eye of the needle, place a contrasting color behind the needle.
- Coating the thread with bees wax will strengthen and stiffen the thread.
- Use the proper needle for the project.
Tip: Thimbles make sewing easier for sure, but if you are not use to uisng them they can feel akward and bulky. I suggest starting out with the rubber ones and working your way to the metal ones as you become more accustumed the the weight and feel.
|Excuse the car hair, I coul dnot keep them off of it the whole time we were sewting!|
|This is when hand sewing comes in handy. I messed up a whole line going across and was able to revome it easily and redue it. you can easily see were I removed the "bad" line. Once again ignore the lovely cat hair :)|
|This was my first time to close a stitch up when I had to flip it, not the correct way, but a learning process|
