Sewing quick tip: To lengthen a pattern, fill the gap with graph paper instead of
plain paper. Lay the cut edges of your pattern pieces against the horizontal lines
and lay the grain line arrow of each piece against the vertical lines.
Sewing quick tip: To make scissor cutting easier, wipe the lint build-up from your
scissor blades with a clean, soft cloth after every few cuts. This way, your scissors
will cut more smoothly and it'll be easier on your hands.
Sewing quick tip: To determine how large to make a buttonhole, measure the
diameter and thickness of your button and add these two measurements. Or,
measure the diameter of your button and add about 1/8”. Test this buttonhole
length by cutting a slit this size in a scrap of your fabric and passing your button
through it, making sure it has just enough, but not too much room to pass
through. You can also sew a couple of test buttonholes in a scrap of your fabric
before making the final buttonholes in your finished item.
