Hey Everyone! Welcome back! Episode 3 is packed with a ton of information, but it’s all very important.

That being said, if you start to feel your brain leaking out of your ears, take a coffee break.

In this episode, we teach the very basics of understanding patterns. as well as a few must knows regarding fabric and notions. The idea is to take away some of the confusion surrounding patterns. After all, you’re bound to use one eventually and they can be down right intimidating!

If you have absolutely no interest in reading patterns, skip ahead to the fabric and notion section.

No matter what you plan to do with your sewing, you have to know the difference between grain, bias, and nap. In this video, you’ll also learn how to put your fabric “on grain”.

Be sure to stay tuned for next weeks video~ we’re going to actually sew!

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comment section below and come visit us on our blog and social media sites!

    I've been sewing garments for a while (learned as a child and picked it back up as an adult a few years ago.) This is a great video and I've learned a few new things. Thank you!

  11. I want to use all sizes in my pattern but I have to cut out for making one size, how do I keep my pattern for using all the sizes? Do I make the other sizes by tracing to other papers? Sorry if I confuse you.  tia

  12. Can you do a video about using sewing machines needles with their appropriate thread size. I'm having problems with that thanks

    Hi, if I am to alter the waist line won't the fold line marker not be straight? Is that okay? I needed to go up in size by 1.25 inches.
