The Sewing High....

What are you sewing? I'm using scraps of fabric and sewing small gifts that don't take long to make.

When my students come to class I asked them if they found time behind their sewing machine. Their answers are usually "No, I didn't have any time".

My wish to you is that you give yourself that which you desire the most. The things in life that gives you a high, that brings the smiles. Life is too short not to do that which makes you shine so bright.

Enjoy your treasure of the moment and sew something today. It doesn't matter what you make or how good you are at it. We don't start out making gold but putting in the time and learning what's happening with the fabric we can make gold with time. Just like anything in life. Feed it and it grows, do nothing and it dies.

Until next time, Enjoy your moments ~ make them "sew" much fun, Cindy

SEWING TIP: How to MAKE a FACING

 Lets say your sewing a pattern and they want you to use lining. You don't want to line the what your sewing because the fabric is thick enough, you can't see through it, and you live in the tropics when you don't want to line many things because of the heat.

NO WORRIES! You can make a facing from the pattern. IT'S EASY!

A facing is a small piece of fabric that hangs on the inside of the garment. It's used to finish off a raw edge. If its as big as the outside fabric it's called a liner.

Here's how to make a facing using the pattern.

Place paper on the table with the pattern on top and draw/trace the cutting line along the raw edge you want to finish. Say the neckline, armhole, waistline. 



Depending on what I'm sewing and what kind of fabric I'm working with decides how wide I want to make the facing. Usually I go around 2 to 3 inches which give me a little seam allowance. Follow the line you traced how ever long you want your facing to be and draw another line inside the pattern.

Use this to cut the fabric that will hang on the inside of the raw edge your trying to finish. 

Remember all facings get interfacing. Do you know how many people get confused thinking interfacing and facings are one in the same. They aren't the same ... just so you know.

Until next time ~ Enjoy your sewing moments,
See you in class,
Cindy
