Over the last 4 years, I’ve basically taught myself how to sew. One of my best friends introduced me to the basics of quilting and taught me a little about my sewing machine, but other than that I’ve spent the past few years scouring the Internet and reading books and magazines to figure things out.
While I’ve found no shortage of wonderful tutorials of amazing things I could make, I’ve sometimes had a little bit harder time figuring out the simple stuff.
So I’ve decided to put together a little ongoing series where I will try to explain some basic sewing terms. They’ll be the ones that I remember having trouble figuring out.
Here’s a list of what I plan to cover. I’ll link here to the post after it’s done and add something whenever I think of it.
What is an invisible stitch?
What is a seam allowance?
How to backstitch.
