Before you tackle an actual sewing project, get comfortable sewing with your machine without wasting any fabric by using a guide to practice your sewing stitches. The stitching exercises below from the Sew Sew Lounge can help you sew straight lines, turn corners, and follow curves.
Here is how it is done:
- Clicking on the images to download the PDF practice sheets.
- Don’t thread your machine. Instead concentrate on punching needle holes in paper along each line.
- When you finish, hold your paper up to a light to see how straight you sewed.
- Repeat these exercises until you are confident using your machine.
