This is just a quick post today to share with you this great trick I saw on a YouTube video. I’d never seen this method for matching a fabric pattern before I found the video, and I thought perhaps you haven’t, either.
I’m so glad you’re here to see this neat trick!
As always, when I see something that saves time and is an extra little help for sewing, I want to pass it along to you.
Some people sure are smart! Aren’t they?
I decided to try this method on my own (to be sure it’s legit) before telling you about it. I chose a fabric with a bold print that requires a horizontal match.
I folded my top fabric piece over the bottom piece the same way the woman in the video did hers.
I stitched about 1/16th of an inch from the edge of the fold.
Can you see where I’m stitching in this close-up shot?
It works like a charm! Pretty good, huh? (How long did it take you to find the seam?)
Since this will only work with a sewing machine, I’ll now use this method when I’m not surging a seam.
Do you like to learn how others do things? Have you seen this technique before?
Blessings for a wonderful weekend~
