This week I learned two new tricks that have made two sewing tasks SO much easier! I thought I should share them with you.
I learned that binder clips are not only effective at holding together large amounts of paper but they are also effective at holding fabric in place.
I also learned that I no longer hate sewing with plush/minky fabrics!
Binder clips now have a whole new meaning for me. As a quilter I hand sew all of my bindings. I was taught by my wonderful mother to pin them in place and sew, moving the pins as I went.
|Do you see all those pins at the bottom?|
This method has worked for me for years and probably for you too…but I have recently discovered there is a better way! BINDER CLIPS!
This time though, I listened to my mom. She is a GENIUS! She told me to pin the heck out of my fabrics and put the minky/plush side facing up, but that isn’t even the coolest part of her insight. She also told me to sew using my walking foot! Who knew what a difference a walking foot could make?!?
|See all those pins|
Place your pine every 1/2 inch and sewing with your minky/plush fabric on top!
|I have a whole new appreciation for this foot!|
