Tuesday's Tip - Sewing a Straight Line

Posted by Bianca Howell on

As simple as it sounds, sewing a straight line can take time and practice. While most sewing machines will have seam allowance lines these lines can be short and often hard to see. Our solution? Washi tape! 

First, you will want to find a bright, fun and cheery printed washi tape or masking tape. Second, determine your seam allowance. Next, cut off a piece of tape that is around 2-3 inches. Following the seam allowance guide on your machine, lay the piece of tape along that line. Make sure the tape is as straight as possible - this will now be your seam allowance guide. Just match up the end of your fabric with that tape and sew. It's as easy as that!
