Sew a Straight Line!

This is sew easy to do!

You’ve always wanted to sew a straight line with your sewing machine.  However, when you’re through sewing, you find that the line looks a bit wobbly, as if you’d indulged in a 2 martini lunch!

Well, practice definitely makes perfect.  And if you practice like this, you’ll be a pro in no time…

  • Grab a lined piece of paper
  • Set the line in the middle of your sewing foot (that metal clamp you see in the picture above)
  • Press the pedal of the machine with your foot (your real foot, not your sewing foot!)
  • and start sewing down the line.IMG_9345
  • Rinse.
  • Repeat.

You don’t need thread in your needle.  (That way you won’t waste any!)  I just used it to try to illustrate sewing a very straight line!

That simple.  If you don’t get it straight the first 10 times, keep doing it all over the piece of paper.  By the time you’ve “sewn” down every line on that 8 1/2 x 11 inches of paper, you will be an expert!
