4. Cutting your fabric perfectly

As a beginner, you must understand that it is one thing to get the right measurement, and it is also another thing to cut your fabric in accordance with the measurement.
Owing to this, it becomes very important for every beginner to know that once a mistake is made with the cutting nothing can be done to change the situation.

Sewing cannot be separated from pressing. Pressing, I said, not ironing. If you must get it right as a starter, you must learn how to press your fabric properly.
In other to hit the ground running, here are some pressing tips for you:
  • There is a difference between pressing and ironing, and that difference can make or break your project.
  • Use the proper pressing tools for your project – for curved edges or tight spaces it helps to have a pressing ham or a presser bar.
  • Use the correct heat setting for the fabric you’re pressing, and make sure to test a spare piece of the fabric with your iron before you press the actual project pieces.
  • Spray starch can help in pressing difficult fabrics or maintaining crisp lines, though there’s a bit of a debate about it in the sewing world.
