Creating Fashion Dos from Thrift-Store Don'ts ⇆ By Marisa Lynch ∣ chapter onesewing 101hese are sewings basic moves, moves I learned in middle school while hammering out a teal sweatshirt yes, teal and humming Boyz II Men Although weve cometo the end of the rooooad.In practicing these basics, grab your needles and thread and make sure youve got lots of light and a good playlist on in the background see p 123 Working at a desk or dining room table where you can set out your needles and spools of thread is ideal however, you can couch it as long as you dont have butterfingers Hidden needles in the upholstery are nobodys picnic Tush needles a bloodcurdling scream rivaling Janet Leighs in Psycho hand sewingIf youre one of those people who say, but I cant even sew a button, prepare to remove that excuse from your vocabulary With just some needles, a little bit of thread, and the ability to tie a knot, you can hand sew your little heart out There are a bunch of different kinds of stitches that you can learn, but well begin with the easiest and most useful in my humble opinion the top three I use all the time.Running stitch Prepare to master this basic stitch in no timeeasy, breezy, and doable for anyone.1 Grab a piece of thread I usually trim thread longer than necessary because its better to have too much than not enough and run out before youre done A good amount to keep in mind is about 1.5 to 2 times the length of the piece you need to stitch Tie a knot at one end and take the other end and thread it through the eye of a needle.2 Bring the needle up through the underside of the fabric the knot will let you know when to stop Bring the needle back down about 18 inch away from your first point.3 Begin stitching from right to left, with evenly spaced stitches The spacing between these stitches should be small, technically, but you can eyeball about 18 inch between stitchesdo what works for you and the piece.4 Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until a seam is finished, a hole is mended, or you want to take a snack break to Yogurtland.Backstitch This stitch is one of the strongest, great at keeping seams togethermeaning you wont have to worry about your pants tearing at the seam again when you drop your phone for the hundredth time.This happened to me and I didnt have anything to tie around my waist Two words Epic Fail.I think of this stitch as drawing an ocean waveit goes forward, then back a little, then forward , and back a little .1 Bring a threaded needle up through the underside of the fabric Bring the needle back down 1 inch forward from where the needle came through.2 Bringing your needle backward through the underside of the fabric in the middle of the stitch that was made, go another inch forward and bring the needle back down through the fabric.3 Now bring your needle backward through the underside of the fabric again in the middle of the last stitch and make another stitch forward.4 Continue this forward, backward, forward, backward movement until the seam has been stitched up.Overcast stitch Theres nothing foggy about this stitch, insert drum badump ump here, which is perfect for sewing appliqus or fabric on tank tops The zigzaggy overcast stitch is my favorite for putting patches or felted shapes on outfits because it gives a total handmade look.1 Bring the needle through the underside of the fabric and bring it back down about 12 inch through the top of the fabric, on a slant.2 Bring the needle back through the fabric from underneath and continue until youre through With each stitch continue to move along the edge of the fabric, progressing farther along as you go.3 Continue making diagonal stitches along the outside edges of your fabric or appliqu, and back through the fabric.Itll look like a pine tree feather you drew in elementary school.machine sewingSewing machines can be daunting if youve never used one However, when you become one with the machine, youll be hanging out and having cocktail hour together.Beginner machines All the major brandsElna, Brother, Ken, and Singermake great machines for beginners, from mechanical to electronic and computerizedits like Max Headroom is running the machine You dont have to spend a lot eithermany are under a hundred dollars Head to retailers like Target or Walmart for a brand new one, or scope out Craigslist for deals from people getting rid of the machines collecting dust in their attics.If youre nervous about jumping into a sewing machine purchase, or want to test the waters first, sign up for a sewing class at a local community college or sewing store Theyll have a machine and a teacher to help you get comfortable before you decide to throw down Benjamins and buy your own.Machine stitches Each sewing machine gives you a bunch of different options to choose from The straight stitch is the one I use most often and it is exactly what it sounds like Straight stitches in a row, forming a line across the fabric.The zigzag stitch is perfect for attaching patches for a homemade look, making buttonholes, sewing stretch material, or even creating free form letters This stitch looks just like the front of Charlie Browns shirt.Theres another zigzag stitch, the three step zigzag stitch not to be confused with a square dance move , that looks similar to the zigzag stitch just mentioned This stitch is most ideal for elastics or jersey knit because the zigzags are wider, giving room for stretch and movement.The blind hem stitch works as an invisible kind of like Patrick Swayze in Ghost stitch, perfect for hemming curtains or a skirt bottom Its a mix of straight and zigzag stitches.Many machines also include decorative stitches like the blanket stitch, satin stitch, or whip stitch for those who want to showcase their super excellent sewing skills with fancy monograms.Machine stitch lengths Just like the saying Liquor before beer, youre in the clear beer before liquor makes you sicker, I came up with a line for cautioning about stitch lengths Short and sweet with no repeats long and loose probably reproduce.This reminds me that the shorter the stitch the durable it will be hopefully you wont have to sew it than once , and the longer the stitch the greater the likelihood youll have to redo it Stitch lengths will range from less than 1 to 6 millimeters, or 4 to 24 stitches per inch these are the two scales of measurement Looking at lengths, finer fabrics satin will be 1 or 2 mm medium thick fabric cotton, linen will stay right in the center at a length of 2.5 or 3 mm and thicker fabrics denim, corduroy will be 4 or 5 mm.Machine needles also see Needles on p xvi Choosing the right needles for sewing different fabrics is like wearing the right clothes for each season In summer you wear lighter clothing and less of it , while in winter you wear layers of thicker clothing Likewise, the thinner your fabric, the smaller the needle youd use Machine needles are sized 60 8 smallest to 120 19 largest , with the first number associated with the diameter of the needles shaft multiplied by 100 and the second number associated with the U.S measuring systemBobbins also see Bobbins on p xv Bobbins are a necessity for the sewing machine A bobbin is to a spool of thread as Kid Sister is to My Buddy Sorry if I got that commercial jingle stuck in any of your heads They are mini spools that the thread is wound around beneath the throat plate inside the machine The throat plate creates the stitches on the underside of the garment when sewingthe thread from the spool makes the top stitchesand without bobbins, the machine is just a big rectangular paperweight.Wind That Bobbin 1 Pick your thread and put it on the spool holder.2 Take an empty bobbin and put it on the bobbin winder.3 Pull the thread to the left and wrap it around the tension disk once, bringing it toward the bobbin winder on the right.4 Wrap the thread clockwise around the bobbin a few times or bring the thread through the pinhole in the top of the bobbin, depending on the kind of bobbin youre using Place the bobbin on the winding spindle.5 Push the bobbin winder with the bobbin on it to the right until you hear the winder click in place.6 Begin to press the foot pedal and the bobbin will spin, winding thread around it.7 I like to have full bobbins, so continue to press the foot pedal until the bobbin is almost completely wound with thread Some machines automatically stop when the bobbin is full, but if your machine doesnt, keep an eye on it at the 34 point and stop it before it overflows at the bobbins edge You want the thread as smoothly wound as possible.GO FROM THRIFT SHOP CHEAP TO RUNWAY CHIC EACH AND EVERY DAY Based on her wildly popular blog of the same name, guerrilla seamstress
