Sewing Basics - 101

I have been learning the following lessons throughout the past couple of months: 

  1. Remember to pre-wash all your fabrics -
    It seems tedious, but this is done in order to pre-shrink all your fabrics, this way everything will fit nicely after you're done sewing. OR leave space for larger seams if you decide to skip this step. 
  2. Press and iron your fabric to remove all wrinkles -
    You will more accurate measurements fo your fabrics.  In sewing, being accurate is key to your projects. 
  3. Measure everything 2 or 3 times.... -
    Once again, tedious...however, you'll be glad you did! 
  4. When working with a pattern, read the instructions and study them like if you were going to take a test on it! -
    It will save you time in the long run, when/if you read the pattern, instructions, or tutorial first.
