Sew 101


I've structured this series, so each week builds on previous weeks' lessons. Each week I go over some basic terms, and give a tutorial for a project that you should be able to complete in under an hour.  I'd love to see your finished projects, just leave me a comment after the tutorial, so I know where to find you.




Grain/Selvage, Nap/ Easy Bubble Skirt
French Seams? How To make your seams look professional 
How to sew curves
Pintucks (this one takes longer than an hour, depending on the amount of pin-tucks)

Pleated Ruffles


All about Applique

Rufflles



All About Button Holes

Tips: sewing w/ patterns (It's not scary)


Adding cuffed sleeves


Tips for making hand-made garments look professional

I hope that you you use all my tutorials and they help you develop the same love of sewing that I have. Feel free to use them for private use-or send me a chunk of the profits. (warning: snotty comment ahead) Please also just don't re-do my tutorials on your blog and say you got them here.  Simply show your finished product and then link back.
