Annie Stafford - Learn to sew on Instagram: "❗️No overlocker, no problem❗️

Have you ever used your sewing machine to overlock your fabric? Well now you can 🙌🏼 

In this sewing tutorial I show you how to overlock the edge of your fabric to get a “mock overlocked” look.

The trick here is to sew as close as you can to the edge of the fabric, this allows you to pull off any loose threads to make it look overlocked. This sewing hack has come in super useful for me when working with fabric such as this cotton canvas, and is a great way to stop your fabric from fraying. 

🦋However if you are going to work with knits and don’t have access to an overlocker, there are other alternatives such as a zig-zag stitch, or a stretch threads. 🦋

Sew Essential sewing supplies on Instagram: "A quick, neat way to sew a hem plus curved hem bonus sewing tip.   Sewing patterns will often tell you to sew a narrow hem by pressing the fabric under and under again, but this method is less bulky and a lot quicker.   Finish the raw edge of your fabric with your overlocker then press up and stitch down to secure. You can even use the overlocker stitches as a guide for pressing and sewing depending on how deep you want it.  Bonus sewing tip - for curved hems knock your differential feed up a notch to compress the fabric slightly and ease the curve in neatly.  #sewingtips #overlockertips #hemming #howtosew #learntosew"
