Tips And Basics For Successful Sewing

Posted on Thursday, September 3, 2009 in Sewing Machines

  Tips to help you save time and money, to make your sewing experience more comfortable and successful.



 This information can be used for beginners and the more talented.

 From sewing hems to rolled hem sewing, you can learn it all with these sewing tips.


Here are few of tips that I would like to share with you:

1. Before discarding pants, cut off the belt loops and use to sew on the inside of children’s coats and jackets for a coat loop. No more fallen coats at school.

2. Before sewing on buttons, tape each one where it belongs with a strip of transparent tape. After the first stitches are made you can remove the tape.

3. To avoid pinholes when hemming delicate garments, mark the hemline with tailor’s chalk and use clips to hold the fold in place.

4. Prevent future errors in sewing by slipping a memo into individual patterns explaining any size alterations or changes for that item.

5. Prevent fraying by reinforcing the hems with a row of zigzag stitching in a matching or contrasting color.

6. Sew a large button on each end of the drawstring on pajamas and sweat suits. This will keep the string from disappearing.

7. Keep a spool of clear nylon thread on hand. Because it is transparent it will pick up the color of the fabric. This will also work when a bobbin runs out and the spool is almost empty; just put the clear thread on your bobbin.

8. Place a thin sheet of foam rubber under your sewing machine’s foot pedal to prevent it from sliding around when you use it on an uncarpeted surface.

9. Store a magnet in your sewing basket to attract loose pins and attach one to your  sewing machine  to hold extra needles. If you glue a small magnet to the end of a wooden yardstick you won’t have to bend over to pick up any pins that fall on the floor. 

10. Thoroughly washed and cleaned mascara brushes can be used to clean the crevices of your sewing machine.

11. When letting down a garment hem you can diminish the crease by applying white vinegar to the wrong side of the fabric

and steam press it.

12. Try this economical substitute for custom-cut table pads: Place a quilted mattress cover over your table top and trim with scissors for a custom fit. You’ll have a sturdy, heat-absorbent table pad to protect the finish of your table.

13. For a substitute needle threader: push the needle through a sheet of white paper,as it’s more noticeable.

14. When shopping for accessories for a recent sewing project, staple a small fabric sample to an index card and carry it with you to the stores.

15. To organize loose buttons: String them on twist ties and twist the ends together for an easy way to store them.

Sewing For Kids: Sewing Space

Posted on Thursday, September 3, 2009 in Sewing Machines

When teaching your children to sew, there are things you can do with your sewing space that will make them more comfortable while they are sewing, and even better, help encourage a greater desire to sew. Give them little project to complete, let them explore their creativity. This a bit of information about sewing for kids.

WHERE?
Although we would all love to have our own sewing /craft room, most of us have to find a small corner in the house where we can sew. Through experience I have learned, that if you want to learn something, or more importantly you want your kids to learn something, the source needs to be readily available. Otherwise, "out of sight, out of mind".

I started very early having "centers" around the house (primarily in the areas where we "lived" the most) for my girls. Some years we even gave up furniture in an area in order to have TOOLS for learning. A Reading center, Music center, Building center, Science center… If things were out (neatly organized, of course) and readily available, there was never a question that they would be used. 

sewing tips sewing was no different . We started sewing in the laundry room, which when everything was set up – the table and machine, we couldn’t wash our clothes. So the girls were only sewing when I set aside the time for it, and it had to be put away immediately afterwards.

When we moved to an area where it could stay out all of the time, the girls improved rapidly, as did I. Why? Because we could see it, we wanted to sew more often, and the girls didn’t have to always wait for me. **With my 3 year old, at the time, there were limitations.

Added Bonus
Moms, we rarely have a chunk of time where we can complete a whole project from start to finish. This set up is a huge advantage for us as well. I will see that I have 15 minutes to spare, and I can sit right down and sew several lines and then walk away!

SEATING

We’ve talked about where, now let’s talk about your child’s positioning. It’s very important that your kids are comfortable while they are sewing. It is also important that they are sitting high enough to look down on the needle and their hands. If they are older this is easy. If they are young, you have two choices for those little bodies.

1. Buy a small child’s table.

PROS: this is very comfortable for your child.
CONS: if you are sharing machines, it isn’t real comfortable for you.

childrens sewing fabric2. Use a regular table.

If needed, use pillows to raise your child on the chair. For their feet, find a storage box to place the pedal on.

PROS:you can use what you already have, and it is much easier to share the machine. 

CONS: at first it may feel a little awkward if your kids are real little. When my 3 year old started sewing, she worked at a child’s table. This was because she never knew where to place the foot she wasn’t using, when she sat at the larger table. However, by age 6 she preferred being at the "big" table with us.
Whichever one you choose, just make sure they are comfortable!

3.Buy your child a childrens sewing machine  

When you know and are surey are capable to work independently. Start giving them hand sewing projects and or just any sewing projects for kids, let their creativity shine out! 

Kristi learned to sew right along with her daughters. The girls were age 3 and 6, at the time! Because it was such an enjoyable experience she wants to encourage others to pursue this endeavor.

Kristi experienced the woes of feeling very ignorant just trying to read a pattern and was discouraged from trying to teach her girls on her own. After receiving a new sewing machine from her husband for her birthday, she became bound and determined to fulfill her desire to learn to sew.  childrens sewing machines
Kristi’s plan was to learn everything before she tried to teach her kids. But as she was learning, her girls caught her enthusiasm and in amazement she watched them flourish in learning to sew right along with her. Kristi says that, "quite honestly, because we knew nothing I experienced a real freedom in my own education".

At age 8 yrs. old, her younger daughter could sew her own dresses, and her older daughter, at 11 yrs. old, had a passion for sewing, and was a better seamstress than Kristi.

What Kristi wants to do, is share her journey in sewing; to help others know (with hindsight being 20/20) that the best way to learn is by doing. She has shared with friends and family their way of learning to sew, as well as, the projects and patterns that built their skills. She has seen it not only work for others, but truly bring a delight into the sewing experience.

Brother Sewing Machines; Brother CS-6000i

Posted on Sunday, August 30, 2009 in Sewing Machines

Brother sewing machines are known to be the best at doing the sewing job.  

Have you ever owned any of the Brother Sewing Machines?Broher sewing machine

My sister bought a Brother CS-6000i a few months ago, and from what she tells me, it is the best sewing machine she has ever used. It uses a standard 7mm programmable stitch, has 41 utility stitches, and 34 built-in  decorative stitches . And that is just the beginning of the list.

What it includes:

The Brother sewing machine an assortment of feet that come in the box, including feet for buttonhole, overcasting, monogramming, zippers, even a walking foot. And if the ones that come with it aren’t enough to suit you, there are many optional feet available as well, including binder, cording, gathering, and a special quarter inch quilting foot. With the Brother CS-6000i,  simplicity meets technology and the user comes out the overall winner. Brother sewing machine manual is also fairly easy to use.

While the CS-6000i may be the best sewing machine they make, there are many other Brother  sewing machines available, designed for everything from simple straight stitches to multiple thread, multicolor embroidery with some of their more advanced machines. No matter what your sewing project may be, there is a Brother sewing machine designed for the job

Be warned in advance, though, that the more computerization you get in your sewing machine, the higher its cost will be. Machines which feature over a hundred stitch functions often cost as much as three or four simpler models. And very few Brother sewing machines, including the CS-6000i, are able to handle stitching speeds greater than 1000 stitches per minute. For most embroidery, this is more than sufficient, but for long straight projects, the speed could be somewhat frustrating.

The CS-6000i from brother has many standard features, such as a free arm for sleeves and cuffs. It has the same preset height and pressure settings for the presser foot,which can be annoying, but attempts to make up for it by other bonuses, such as automatic needle  threading, and snap on presser foot attachments.

The super simple computer routines make even the newest novice a professional with a sewing machine.

Overall                       sewing machine thread

For an all-purpose sewing machine, the Brother CS-6000 is the best sewing machine on the market. Amateur and professional users alike will appreciate the ease of use, and complete portability, making this  sewing machine  a joy to use.

Be warned that it is not the best choice for elaborate embroidery, because there are other Brother models betters suited for that. But for all-around usage, this is the obvious choice for most sewing applications.

There are other great sewing machines by Brother so it is a good idea to look at more reviews.

Learn how to sew, its kids stuff

Posted on Sunday, August 30, 2009 in Sewing Machines

 Sewing is a fantastic talent and if you’ve got it then why not show it off! Here are some tips and basics for teaching your kids how to sew. Startoff with simplicity sewing patterns then gradually teach them more depending on your experience.

Teach your kids how to sew and share your creativity with your little ones. You would be amazed at how quickly they can learn, but remember it takes time, enthusiasm, effort and alot of patience.

 Before you start to teach your child to sew, you need to ask yourself 4 important questions about their personality. Based on the answers to these questions, will determine how you approach teaching them how to sew, and more importantly how to give them a joyful experience learning. Tips for sewing

Starting Off Tips For Learning To Sew:

In the "9 Secrets to Successfully Teach Your Child to Sew", I discussed knowing your child’s personality. The 4 questions were:
1. Is your child a perfectionist?
2. Do they get frustrated easily?
3. Do they like following specific directions, or do they like to invent things on their own?
4. Are they able to stay on task for a block of time, or do they learn in spurts?

Before we delve into the answers to these questions, it is important to remind you of the crucial point of our teaching. We are wanting to instill a  desire for sewing, not just another thing that our child needs to learn how to do.

So many times before we start something we think we need to know everything there is to know about it. Think about how our children learn the most important things in life. Did you sit your child down and explain to them the mechanics of crawling and walking prior to them doing it?

If you do not know how to sew, the best way to give your children a desire to learn is for them to see you learning to sew . Another way, is for your child to see things that other kids have made. We have many friends who have expressed an interest in  learning how to sew  after they have seen something that our girls have made.

So, no more saying "I just don’t know how, or I don’t think I can teach them myself". JUST GO FOR IT!

NOW, back to the questions. Maturity level is an essential ingredient when considering how to work with the answers to these questions.
I will use my own children, and a few other kids from families I have worked with, to show how the answers to these questions determine your initial approach to teaching. I will use different colors to represent the different girls. All of these girls had never sewn before.
A. 3 yr. old
B. 6 yr. old
C. 8 yr.old
D. 9 yr. old
E. 14 yr. old

2. Do they get frustrated easily?

C. Yes, if something is too difficult
D. Not when working on own creation. Yes, when what she was doing was not her choice.
E. No, would follow through until correctly resolved

3. Do they like following specific directions, or do they like to invent things on their own?
A. Always liked to create her own things
B. She preferred following an example if she knew that one was available. If specific directions were on hand she would follow these. Always found great satisfaction in accomplishing the steps to instructions.
C. Very diligent to follow specific directions
D. Extremely creative. Preferred to invent her own creations.
E. Wanted to sew clothes with a goal of creating her own patterns.

B. Could stay on task
C. Could stay on task
D. Only worked in spurt E. Could stay on task

basic sewing for kidsWays to help them to learn

Based on each of these precious personalities, and their maturity level, this is how they started their journey of sewing.

A. Was given a box of fabric and some stuffing. Was taught the basics of how to make the machine sew straight lines, putting the foot up and down, and pressure on the pedal. She was allowed to create whatever she wanted for 3 months before I asked her to follow a  pattern . Her first pattern was for a quilt. She only worked on this project once or twice a month. All other times in the month were spent on her own creations. Because of the freedom given to her, she mastered straight lines and foot pressure very quickly. When creating on her own, she would spend blocks of time working diligently. During the times that we worked on specific patterns, she would sew and then would play or draw while I pinned the next step. Some days she worked for 15 minutes, other days she would last a couple of hours. Time was based on her interest. *Reminder: due to her age she was never allowed to use the sewing machine without me in the room with her. By age 5 she made her first dress. She continued to sew her own creations but at this time they actually looked like quilts and pillows. She just completed her first dress on her own (a little help from me with cutting and following the pattern), at the age of 8.


B.
Started with practicing straight lines and foot pressure on the pedal. She decided that she wanted to sew a teddy bear first. I was concerned about this because of all the curves and the fact that I had no idea how to make one. I drew the outline on some fabric, cut out the bear and she sewed around it. I told her repeatedly how difficult of a project this was which gave her a lot of confidence when we were done. After this I gave suggestions on some easier projects. She devoured them. Because of her desire to sew clothes, we literally learned to understand patterns together. The amazing thing was how easily we understood them due to the projects we did prior.  She would spend a minimum of 1 hour working on her projects.sewing tips for beginners

By the time she was 8, she was making her own dresses and sewing costumes. At 9, she was branching out into creating her own doll clothes without patterns. We practiced cutting off and on, but it was very difficult for her to get a good straight line. By age 10, she was doing all of it: cutting, marking, pinning, reading the patterns, and sewing.


C.
Started with practicing straight lines and foot pressure on the pedal. She wanted to follow whatever pattern I thought would be best for her. I picked something that was very simple and wouldn’t be easy to mess up. We spent a lot of time encouraging her, and the lines had to be really really bad in order to rip them out. After several completed projects, her lines corrected themselves.

She continued to follow a progression of patterns that built skills one at a time. Now she has the confidence to try harder patterns and isn’t as concerned with perfection. She has also created some of her own designs.

D. Started with teaching the basics: straight lines and foot pressure. Then gave her a box of fabric and let her go. She needed quite a bit of supervision, with gentle reminders about not sewing when there was nothing under the foot. She had no desire to follow a pattern; instead she made her own. She spent approximately 1 1/2 years sewing her own things. Her skills naturally improved and progressed in difficulty. Afterwards, she decided she wanted to try store bought patterns. Once she learned some of the basics for constructing these patterns, she was on her own again however, her projects became more involved and had a more finished look.

E. Started with all of the steps. She wanted to learn everything in order, from laying out the pattern, cutting it out, marking, pinning, and sewing. She wanted to start with clothes, so I gave her several choices for easy dress patterns that would build skills one at a time.

As you can see, each girl started with the basics of learning to sew straight lines and work the foot pedal but how they progressed in their learning was based on their unique personality. After they mastered these steps and were confident in their ability, the projects increased in difficulty in order to introduce new skills. This reduces the pressure to learn everything at once.
