Tip #1: Sew in the Reverse Side of the Fabric

Now, you need to flip your fabric or cloth to the “back” of the cloth – the faded part, or rather, the inside part of the clothes. This is where you should begin your stitching.

This is to ensure that the appearance of the clothes or fabric in the front will not be jeopardized. This way, when you put on your fixed clothes, no one can see your stitching clearly, even though it was the worst stitching you’ve made in your life.

Beware of back stitching, though. You may want to exercise even more caution on where to sew if you want your attractive sewing to be seen.

Tip #2: Have a Sewing Kit

Keep all of your sewing tools in once safe place. You may put all your sewing tools in a tin or a box to avoid your needles from getting mislaid, and to maintain the order of things. Just ensure that your container is big enough for all the threads that you have. For beginners, the container may not be so big and heavy.

Most professional tailors have “containers” of the range of a shelf to a few rooms, depending on their needs. Their “containers” get so big only because they frequently use their sewing tools and sewing take a significant part of their interests. So you don’t have to acquire a large container for your sewing tools if you’re just starting out.

Tip #3: Correct Usage

Even if you are a beginner, make sure that your sewing tools are only for sewing. This is to guarantee your tools have a longer usage life and to minimize the accidents that might take place because you didn’t operate them correctly.

For example, sewing scissors and shears should only be used for cutting cloth or fabric. They should never be used for cutting plastics, paper, foils or even threads! Should you broaden their use beyond cutting cloth, you may discover that your scissors or shears are becoming blunt fast.

With these tips, you are bound to make good progress when you actually try your hand at sewing for beginners. Not only will you enhance the appearance of the end product, you would also be able to keep things organized and increase the shelf life of your sewing tools.
