...Seriously, PINTEREST is the bomb!!! Simply put,
|Wavy vs. Smooth Hem|
...Found this sewing tip on Pinterest just yesterday, and was able to nab a sheet of tissue paper from school because I was in a hurry to try it out. Love myself some knits, but I despise wavy seams and hems. The tip is a great solution to sewing knit fabrics, and can be found on MeSewCrazy's wonderful blog. And yes, MAYBE the tissue will dull the needle, I'm not sure of that though - but I'll soon find out. I think having to throw out a needle is a small cost compared to the value of smooth knit seams and hems. You have to change the needle every now and again anyway - right???
JUST HOW OFTEN DO YOU CHANGE YOUR SEWING MACHINE NEEDLE ON AN AVERAGE???
