The Flower

  • Cut circles out of the colorful fabrics with a diameter of 20cm. A circle cutter is a great tool but if you don’t have one just use a bowl similar diameter.
  • Then, fold one of them in half and cut it.
  • And now take the semi-circle and fold into half and sew it with sewing machine or hand at the open edge.(0.5 cm)
  • Turn the fabric into a cone and proceed with other semicircles.

The Stem

  • Cut the green fabric into strips (3 cm wide) and the length slightly shorter than the stick. Repeat it till the numbers of tulips you want.

SERGER TIPS:HOW TO GATHER FABRIC WITH SERGER

Serger owners:

Did you know you can use your serger to gather fabric? Imagine the possibilities ~ no more knotted or broken threads when you gather fabric.

Step 1:

Set your serger for 4-thread serging.

serger1

Step 2:

Increase your Differential Feed to the highest number ~ (this machine the highest is 2)

serger2

Step 3:

Increase your Stitch Length to the highest number ~ (this machine is a 4, but some sergers go up to 5.)

serger3

 Step 4:

Serge along the raw edge.  You will notice that it does a little gathering.  This is normal.

Step 5:

Notice the two needle threads (the black threads).  Near the fabric edge, put a needle underneath the two parallel threads.  Be sure not to catch either of the looper threads ~ it will knot if you do.  Just the needle threads.

Step 6:

Pull the two needle threads out of the chain of threads.  Do not let these get tangled.  If you do this correctly, they will slip out easily.

Pull the two needle threads to gather your fabric.

Step 7:

Voila!  You will have a nice and even gathers that can easily be adjusted and then attached.  No, stray threads that end up on the outside of your project.

Troubleshoot Your Own Sewing Machine

images (8)

When Your Machine Isn’t Working Properly:

. Clean of the Fluff

Fluff gathers quickly so remove the bobbin and brush out any dirt or threads.

clean the fluff

. Check the Bobbin

Check that the bobbin doesn’t have any loose thread hanging from it that could interfere with the machine workings.

troubleshooting

. Re-thread the machine

Un-thread the machine and re-thread, if you’re not sure about how to thread yours, check the manual and make sure you’re threading it correctly.

rethread

. Change the needle

If the needle is little bend on the end or be a little blunt, change to a new one because that can cause the machine to work harder to push it through the fabric.

change needle

. Add little oil

It helps especially on older machines.

. Turn it off and on again

This might seem a little useless but for computerised sewing machines, turning it off will let the computer reset itself and start afresh.

switch off

. Check the setting

Double check is the stitch length, stitch width, and tension all set where you would normally have them.

check setting

. Take a break

If all else fails and your machine is still not playing nice, turn it off and take a break!

break

Of course, if all else fails, it might be time for a service. There should be someone in your area who specialises in your brand of machine and who can give you a quote on price and the time it will take before they start.

WHAT ARE ALL THOSE STITCHES?

Have you ever taken a look at your sewing machine and the stitches available to be used and wondered what on Earth all those stitches do?

If YES, then here are some infomation to help you understand your sewing machine stitches today.

stitches 1

Here’s the first batch, and really, the main stitches that you will use while sewing:

1-Straight Stitch: Just your basic straight sewing stitch that you will use the majority of the time while sewing.

2-Straight Stitch with Needle Far to the Left: This will allow you to sew far to the left if needed.

3-Lock-a-Matic Stitch: This stitch will automatically knot at the beginning and end of your sewing without you needing to backstitch

4-Locking Stitch: This stitch will do an invisible knotting stitch at the beginning and end of your sewing. For when you need the knotting to be invisible.

5-Triple Stretch Stitch: For use when you need something to have a lot of stretch but also sturdiness. For example, in an armpit of a shirt.

6-Zigzag Stitch: Your classic zigzag stitch.

7-Multiple Zigzag Stitch: Use this stitch to finish the edges on a stretchy fabric that is inclined to pucker if you use the regular stitch. This will help prevent that from happening.

8-Overcasting Stitch: This is used to finish an edge. Check your manual to see if you have this option.

9-Knit Stitch-This stitch if for sewing on knits and stretchy fabric. Sew along the edge of the fabric with a larger than normal seam allowance and then trim off the excess, unsewn fabric on the seam close to the stitches.

10- Stretch Stitch-Use for sewing on knits or other times when you need the stitching to be able to stretch.

11-Blind Hem Stretch: Use to sew a blind hem on stretch fabrics.

12-Blind Hem: Use to sew a blind hem.

BUTTONHOLE STITCHES

stitches 2

These are my buttonhole stitches-used for various types of buttonholes, eyelets and openings:

13-Sensor Buttonhole: This will create a buttonhole just the size needed for the button.

14-Automatic Buttonhole: This one will automatically create a buttonhole if you tell the machine what size the button is.

15-Round End Buttonhole: Used on medium weight fabrics typically.

16-Keyhole Buttonhole: This buttonhole is used on lightweight, delicate fabrics.

17-Rounded Keyhole Buttonhole: This one is good on medium and heavy weight fabrics and is great with bigger buttons.

18-Stretch Buttonhole: Use this on stretchy fabrics.

19- Knit Buttonhole: For use on knit fabrics.

20-Button Sewing: With this and a special foot, you can sew a button in place.

21-Darning Stitch: This will repair rips and holes.

22-Tracking: Reinforce place where extra strength is needed such as pockets and crotches.

23-Eyelet: Creates an eyelet hole.

24-Basting Stitch

SATIN STITCHES

stitches 3

These stitches are called satin stitches and are created in a tight zigzag. These stitches are decorative, for the edge of a blanket or things like that.

LS-Locking Stitch: Creates an invisible knot.

EDGE STITCHES

stitches 4

These decorative stitches finish off edges of fabric:

35-Saddle Stitch- It’s similar to a backstitch in strength. Used on leathers.

36-Saddle Stitch

37-Double Overedge Stitch: Use this stitch to finish the edges of fabric that tends to fray a lot.

38-Overlock Stitch: This stitch creates a finish along the edge similar to what a serger would create. Creates a more professional looking finish.

39-Shell Tuck Stitch: Decorative Stitch for edging

40-Applique Stitch: Use to applique things on and have an nice, finished applique edge.

FANCY STITCHES

stitches 5

Some machine also has a whole bunch of fancy and fun stitches that can be used to decorate as you sew. See some of them above.

Did this help? Did you discover any stitches on your machine that you didn’t know you had?
