Sewing Quick Tips:

Tip #1: When stitching heavy denim fabrics, use a special denim or jeans sewing machine needle. The thicker
shaft and sharper point of this needle will pierce through layers of thick denim easily and without breaking.

Tip #2: To make sewing over fabric bumps easier, try using a “Jean-a-ma-jig” or a “Hump-jumper." This tool
will keep your pressure foot level as you sew over the bump and give your feed dogs something to grip onto to
help move your fabric forward.

Note: If a project below includes a printable pattern, you’ll see a “p” next to its title. If a project doesn’t include
a pattern template, it likely consists of simple fabric shapes (like squares and rectangles) that you can easily
measure and cut yourself. And note that some projects may be designed for a specific type of sewing machine.
However, if a project you like calls for, say, complex embroidery stitches and you have just a simple zigzag
machine, you can try experimenting with a satin stitch, hand-embroidering a design, or adding purchased
embellishments instead.
