Tip for sewing bias tape
Sewing bias tape
Over the years I have posted many bias related posts (see the collection below), but it's just occurred to me that I never shown you how to sew on bias. Many of you have problems catching the back when sewing bias on so I'll show you a trick so that it catches every time. I will do a series of posts showing you how to sew on bias, do corners and finish bias. Edited : Other posts in this series included : how to add bias to curves & mitred corners Today we start with sewing bias on. Start by placing your opened bias fold to the edge of your fabric. Right side of your bias will be placed against the wrong side of your fabric. Pin. Sew along the fold line with a straight stitch Turn over so your right side of main fabric is facing up and press bias away from the edge. If you turn your fabric back over it should look like this. OK, the trick to making sure your second row of stitching catches the back bias edge is all about the first stitching line and not the bias inself. Make sure your second row is above the original stitching line (towards the fabric edge). If it falls on top or below it then it won't catch at the back. Do this by pressing your bias top edge just a smidge over the stitching row - this keeps everything straight as well. Sew your top row on the right side of your fabric like a top stitch about 1/8" (not as close as an edge stitch about 1/16") . Your stitching must be above the original row of stitching. This is how it will look both front & back. This comprehensive digital guide covers finding the grain, corners, cutting & joining strips, curves, finishing off, gadgets & more.

nice finish to fleece edge using one of the built-in stitches on your sewing machine -this used a Greek stitch sewn over the edge of the turned fleece. This completely buried the edge so it is difficult to tell which is the front or back.

Nice edge finish to fleece blanket by using one of the decorative built-in stitches on your sewing machine. Turn the edge, stitch, and the edge gets buried in the stitching; a really professional edge treatment.

A long pincushion attached to a quilted mat that goes under the sewing machine. Quiets the noise and shaking, and gives you a handy place for pins. Great idea for the sewing room!

The Patchsmith: Across the Pond for the Skinny Pincushion/SEWING MACHINE MAT
sewing machine mat w/ pin cushion
Sewing projects to try
Whoever said ‘three into one doesn’t go’ is wrong, wrong, wrong. One of the best things about the Across the Pond sew-along is that it is run by three very different people, Amy, Susie and me. We all have different tastes, loves and talents. This month is the turn of Susie to select the project and lead the way over at Susie’s Sunroom. Susie's matching skinny pincushion and machine cover Susie has chosen the Skinny Pincushion – a free pattern from Alexia Abegg of Green Bee patterns. Susie loves her pin cushions as you will recall if you joined us in January this year when we made the bird pincushion. Yet again Susie has picked a real 'corker' (English slang for 'goodun', which is slang for 'super-dooper'). Courtesy of Green Bee Patterns The skinny pincushion sits at the base of your sewing machine holding your pins ready for when you need them. It is such a good idea. But there’s just one problem for me ..... I live in a very little house, with just one work table for sewing, cutting, sketching and pinning. I slide my sewing machine back and forth across the table all day as I create room for a multitude of tasks. I need the pincushion to stay in place as I move my machine. Solution? Easy – add a sewing machine mat to the pin cushion and hey presto – problem sorted. I made my pincushion longer - to fit the length of my sewing machine and I made a quilted mat, slightly narrower than the pincushion. I constructed the pincushion as per the pattern except that I left one long side open. On the open side, I pressed 1/4" seam allowance to the wrong side on the front and the back pieces. I then attached the pincushion to the quilted mat leaving a 2" gap for stuffing. Once I had stuffed the pincushion I slip-stitched the opening shut. I used left over batting to stuff my pincushion which works very well but is a little bumpy in places. I am unsure how Susie manages to use cat litter without it ending up all over the place! The most important part of any Across the Pond project TEA-TIME! Now before you go a couple of chances to win some goodies ...... Firstly have you left a comment on my Patchique blog? You have until midnight (GMT) tomorrow, 6th October 2013 to be in with a chance of winning a copy of the fantastic Japanese Taupe Quilts book by Susan Briscoe. And secondly, Craftsy is having a blogger-award competition - you nominate a blogger and YOU have the chance to win a free Craftsy course. As they say "if you're not in it, you can't win it" so just click on the badge below (or on the left-hand side) to nominate your favourite blogger. Clicking is the easy bit - choosing from the many wonderful blogs out there is the hard bit. The badge says 'nominate me' but it means 'nominate the blogger who has inspired you the most over the last year' - it doesn't have to be me! I have lots and lots of favourite blogs but I will find a way to whittle it down - somehow, someway, someone. Sew until next time ....................

Sewing Machine Needles & How to Choose Them Choosing the correct type of needle for the right sewing project is a task that many of us find a little daunting. But it needn’t be, it’s just a case of matching the type of needle to the type and weight of fabric and understanding that needle types relate to the structure of the fabric they are used on.

Sometimes the perfect thread for a sewing project comes on a spool that's imperfectly sized for your sewing machine. The solution: Place the spool in a heavy mug, and position it on your work surface directly underneath the spool pin. Take hold of the thread end, and hook it over the spool pin before threading it into the machine as usual (the thread should form a 90-degree angle); the thread will unravel smoothly as you work.
