Hello and welcome to a brand new series! I’m having so much fun sewing bags since the time I’ve started sewing. I swear it’s really addictive! I’m always day dreaming about a new bag design every now and then, even between my classes, which something I shouldn’t be doing at all. Haha.
Okay, it’s finally here! In this post I wanna make an announcement about an up-coming series about sewing bags. Wohoo!
I started off my sewing with dresses, moved to pillow covers, curtains and finally bags and pouches. Hands down bags are my most favorite things to sew. I’ve designed and sold a lot of bags till now and with every bag there was something new to learn. Old techniques replaced new techniques which are lot easier and give more professional look, and I will be sharing those new techniques here with you girls.
Zippers can be quite tricky to sew, and based on different requirements it can get trickier. There’s a different way of adding zippers to bags, garments and pockets. When it comes to garments; there’s slot seam, invisible and lapped zippers. When you look at the bags, there is the recessed zipper as well as the top zipper. Whew! That’s a lot!
So, last to last week I shared how to cut fabrics perfectly straight WITHOUT a rotary cutter for those of us who couldn’t get their hands on a rotary cutter because of the area they’re living in, like the old me.
This post is related to the new me. That is, for those of us who JUST got hold of a brand new, fancy rotary cutter and have no idea how to go about using it.
Well, I found this pretty useful video on YouTube, which was very helpful for me. I made sure to save it up for you guys.
If you are like me, wait, the old me then you MUST read this post.
So what was so special about the old me?
Old me didn’t have rotary cutter! 🙁 And because of that my fabrics were NEVER straight, sometimes the edges would be slanted, or there would be a bump in the middle, very uneven thus making the whole sewing process quite messy and frustrating.
That’s because I live in a place where sewing and stuff is not so popular. So, if you live in a similar place where it’s hard to find sewing supplies, this post might be helpful for you.
Because, I’m sharing how to cut fabrics perfectly straight without the cutter.
If you’ve been following me on Facebook you would know I am taking ‘Sewing Machine 911’ online course from Craftsy. Today I wanna share a short summary of all the wonderful sewing machine tips I’ve learned so far.
