Sample text

With the T-shirt right side out, line up the center of the scarf piece on the T-shirt’s shoulder seam. 4 PIN SCARF TO ARM OPENING Keep the folded edge of the scarf just covering the sleeve seam on the right side and pin the scarf to the front and back of the sleeve opening. For extra “flutter,” don’t attach the scarf around the entire armhole opening. Repeat for the second sleeve. 5 SEW SCARF TO SHIRT Sew the scarf pieces onto the sleeve opening. Serge or zigzag stitch the remaining raw edges of the scarf and the sleeve opening.

To get started, all you need is a needle, thread, and some pins to hold things together while you work. Needles and Pins Different needles have different purposes. Needles meant for embroidery thread have larger eyes; if you’re sewing a delicate fabric, you’ll use a thinner needle than you would for a heavy winter coat. When in doubt, ask your local fabric store or a friend who sews which needle would work best on the fabric you want to use, or buy multipurpose needle packs and experiment. Any type of straight pins will work for the projects in this book.

The stitches on top of the fabric have spaces between them where the needle has gone underneath. You can keep both upper and lower stitches the same size or make them slightly different. When hemming a skirt, for example, the stitches on the public side of the fabric are usually quite a bit smaller than the stitches running behind. When in doubt, aim for consistency and even stitch size. Hand sewers have an advantage over machine sewers that can sometimes compensate for lack of speed: they can make their stitches any size they want.
