Beginner's Sewing Tips: Useful Things You Need to Know

Are you just learning to sew? Here are a few tips and tricks that will get you through some of the rough spots...

Make sure that you fully understand how to thread the machine and bobbin and that you can troubleshoot small problems. Make sure you understand needle sizes and thread weights. Nothing will cause you more trouble while sewing than if you are using the wrong needle or thread size. Large needles, like 16's are used for denim, corduroy and heavy fabrics. Small needles, like 11's, are used for something like tricot or nightgown material. If, after sewing a small area, you can see the needle hole around the thread, the needle might be too large. If you're sewing with a needle that is too small it might seem like the needle is having trouble piercing more than one layer of fabric. Even when using the right size needle it could have some difficulty going through several layers. Instead of stomping the pedal to force it through, work the hand wheel, piercing the fabric slightly, then again, then again. This will help prevent breaking needle after needle. Small needles mean smaller weights of thread. Large needles require heavyweight threads. Most home machines are not powerful enough to tackle vinyl, leather or tarp material. Don't tear up your machine trying to do jobs it's not capable of doing.

Occasionally use pressurized air, or an air compressor, to blow dirt and fibers out of the machine. Be sure to keep the machine well-oiled and the thread fresh. Old thread can have dryrot and break while sewing - or while wearing - the garment! Use the same size thread for the needle as well as the bobbin. Later, as you become expert, you'll learn how to use different weights to create different looks. No matter what you're sewing always hold the ends of the needle and bobbin threads taut as you take your first couple of stitches. This will ensure the thread doesn't become entangled at the beginning. After a few stitches you can trim these off.

Starting out simple is the way to go when it comes to learning how to sew. Practice sewing in a straight line, going around curves, and becoming expert at hemming. No matter what the project, hemming is usually a part of it. Becoming really good at hemming will help you pull off the perfect sewn projects of your future. Pressing with a warm iron is a huge help when it comes to hemming. Make sure you understand what type of cloth you're working with, and how it would react to a hot iron, before you press the hem. With some garments it'll be necessary to lay a towel over the area as you iron. This will protect many fabrics which would otherwise melt or be ruined. Always pin the hem, using a ruler, before pressing. The pressing of the hem will ensure that you can easily sew it without puckers. Iron a piece of scrap fabric to see how the material reacts. Barely touch the fabric with the tip of the iron to test. If the fabric melts to the iron, wait until the iron cools completely, then use rubbing alcohol to clean it. Flimsy and filmy fabrics generally cannot be ironed without a towel covering.

Eventually you'll want to try your hand at button-making. Whether you have a machine that makes any number of buttonholes, or you've got a machine that makes you create crude buttonholes, you'll benefit by laying the buttons on the fabric. Actually, just take one button and position it, on the fabric, where the first button will go. Make a dot right above, and right below, the button. The dots should be nearly touching the button. Continue placing the single button on each position where the new buttons will go. Mark the dots above and below to mark the button holes. If you're using a store-bought pattern these marks will already be on the pattern for you. The marks will help you decide how long the buttonhole will be. Make the hole too long and the garment will continually come unbuttoned. Make the hole too short and you'll have a difficult time pushing the button through. The buttonhole width is not as important; make the hole a sliver for small, thin buttons. Make it much wider for large, thick buttons.

When sewing elastic directly into a garment sometimes you'll use a zig-zag stitch but sometimes you'll need a straight stitch. With wide elastic you generally stitch down one side with a straight stitch, then come up the opposite side with the same stitch. With narrow elastic it's often appropriate to use a narrow zig-zag stitch, straight down the center, while slightly tugging the elastic. The zig-zag stitch should never be wider than the elastic. Remember that when you pull the elastic it will be more narrow than if it's just lying flat. For garments that require you to create a wide hem, then thread wide elastic through the hem, use a safety pin for assistance. First cut the elastic piece to the size you need. Fold the elastic over slightly on one end then push the pin through, near the fold. Now you can guide the safety pin through the hem to pull the elastic in. Before doing so, pin the opposite end of the elastic to the opposite side of the hem area. This will keep the entire elastic from going through the hem. When the elastic is through, remove the pins, but keep the ends of the elastic together and aligned. Now stitch across the ends of the elastic, then across the opening where you inserted the elastic.

When sewing sequined garments you'll need to pay attention to the needle itself. If the sequin are glued on the adhesive will build up on the needle as you sew. Frequently stop, pull the thread out of the needle only, then wipe the needle down with a cotton ball dampened with rubbing alcohol. Do not let alcohol drip onto the machine or down into the bobbin area. Do not leave the thread in as you clean the needle unless you take care not to get it wet. If you fail to upkeep the needle while sewing sequined fabric you can do damage to the needle, the cloth and the machine as well. You can tell when the needle is getting gummed up by watching the sequin as you sew. If the needle goes through, and straight back up, you're okay. If the needle goes through the sequin, then pulls the sequin back up slightly, it's time to wipe down the needle.

If you make summer outfits or other things that have spaghetti straps you could become pretty frustrated unless you know about a little trick for turning the straps inside-out. After you sew straps, you must turn them right-side out, and that can get rather challenging if the strap is very narrow. Many people place a safety pin on one end, then feed it through the strap itself. This works but can be time-consuming. If you have a wooden dowel, or even an antenna broken off an old radio, this can be very helpful. Stitch one end of each strap all the way across. Now push that end onto the end of the antenna, then slide the strap down the antenna. It'll only take a few seconds to turn the strap this way.

People who sew generally have many patterns lying around, but if you've seen the prices of patterns lately, you might be looking for alternatives. Tear apart items of clothing that have gotten torn or otherwise ruined. Ask friends to give you old garments they no longer wear. Remove the buttons, zippers and other notions. Many of these can be reused. Literally take the garment apart by the seams. Remove hems, bands, pockets and other portions of the garment. As you do, mark them, so it will be easier to make the perfect pattern. Mark where the buttons were, mark shoulder seams, side seams and other important areas. When you cut new patterns, you can transfer these marks to the new fabric, and the garment will go together like clockwork. Pay close attention to sleeves; mark the top center, the bottom under-seam, and similar areas. Fabric pieces inside the garment should be marked "interfacing" and "front left" or "front right".

You're going to absolutely love your life now that you can sew! You'll be making curtains, bed sets, outfits of all sorts - who knows what all? When you first start sewing it can seem like an impossible dream, but after you've practiced a little, you'll astonish yourself and be amazed at your talent!
