Lock those Stitches!

I’m teaching a few classes right now and I’ve been talking about locking stitches. Some folks probably call it different things, but everyone should strive to have every seam lock:)
Here is how you do it:
1. Hold the two pieces you are sewing together where the seams align. The seam allowances should be on opposite sides. The pieces will fit snugly and “lock”.

2. Pin down both seam allowances.


3. Sew the pieces together. You should get a perfect intersection every time!

Let me know if you have any questions:)

  2. That’s cool! I usually pin right on the thread line but I like this so much better. I just started following you. Thank you
