Terrific Tip Tuesday: Marking Fabric

TerifficTip

In order to sew accurate half square triangles and flying geese, it’s important to start with a well marked square. I place my pen in the corner and align the ruler next to it. This puts the ruler in the right spot, so that the line goes to the corner and not next to it.

I draw the line starting in the middle and going out. This keeps the fabric from bunching. Draw slowly and carefully.

Perfect! But if it’s not, don’t be afraid to erase and try again.

  1. A good line is the first part of sewing accurate hst the second part is sewing just off the line so when pressed it comes out accurate.
