Guide: How to sew with your sewing machine
Of course, you must have a sewing machine and set up it first before sewing, so google “setting up sewing machine” and sewing machine reviews to do this. Now, let’s sew!
Step 1: Select a straight stitch and a medium stitch length. Counsel your manual for how to do this on your machine. On this machine, lines are set by turning the lower handle on the right half of the machine until it fits properly. Continuously set the line with the needle up and out of the fabric, since it might move the needle.
A straight line is utilized to sew generally creases. The following most basic fasten is the crisscross, generally used to keep edges from fraying.
Step 2: Rehearse on some scrap material. Pick a simple, woven material, not a sew one, for your first sewing background. Try not to utilize a substantial fabric for your first endeavors at machine sewing. Denim and wool can be difficult to sew on the grounds that they are too thick when a few layers are heaped together.
Step 3: Line up the fabric under the needle. Sew with the main part of the material to one side of the machine; swarming the mass on the right side can bring about chaotic sewing.
Step 4: Lower down the presser foot onto the fabric. There is a lever behind or to the side of the needle gathering that raises or brings down the presser foot.
Step 5: Hold the loose ends of both threads. For the initial few fastens, you’ll have to hold these finishes to keep them from withdrawing into the fabric. After you’ve sewed for a short separation, you can give up and utilize both hands to control the fabric and the machine.
Step 6: Press the foot pedal. The foot pedal is your rate control. Much the same as the gas pedal in an auto, the harder you push it, the speedier you will go. Push it gradually at to begin with, sufficiently only to get the machine going.
Step 7: Locate the converse button or lever and try it. It inverts the bearing that the machine encourages, so that the fabric goes toward you as the machine sews. Regularly, this catch or lever is spring-stacked, so you should hold it down to sew backward.
Step 8: Utilize the hand wheel to move the needle to its most elevated position. At that point, raise the presser foot. The fabric ought to haul out effortlessly. In the event that the thread pulls back when you attempt to expel the fabric, check the needle position.
Step 9: Cut the thread. On numerous machines, there is a little indent on the back of the post that holds the presser foot. You can hold both finishes of the string and draw it down over this indent to cut the string. On the off chance that you don’t have such an indent or you might want a cleaner cut, use scissors to trim the string. Leave a tail stretching out from the machine for your next crease.
Step 10: Work on sewing a seam. Pin two bits of fabric, right sides together, close to the edge. The crease will go 1/2 inch to 5/8 inch from the edge. You can sew a solitary layer of fabric (and might do as such to prevent an edge from fraying, say), however, since the objective of most machine sewing is to join two bits of fabric, you ought to get used to sewing with a few layers and sticks.
Step 11: Move to another part of the fabric. Utilize the hand wheel at the highest point of the right half of the machine to move the needle to the highest point of its go before beginning a crease and again to expel the fabric from the machine toward the end of a crease. This lifts the needle, and permits you to move to another range of the fabric you’re taking a shot at.
Step 12: Figure out how to sew a sharp corner. Where you need to turn the corner, bring down the needle the distance into the fabric. You can utilize the hand wheel to bring down the needle. Raise the presser foot. Leave the needle down, in the fabric. At that point, Rotate the fabric to the new position, leaving the needle in it. At long last, bring down the presser foot with the fabric in the new position and resume sewing.
Step 13: Try a simple project. When you have made a grouping of test creases and begin to feel great with the basics, take a stab at sewing a pad, pillow case, or bags.
