Welcome You’ve come to learn more about how to make your sewing look more professional and amazing, and I have so much to share with you. Before we get to those tips though, let me share a few more things with you. When I started sewing I would often look at the things I made and compare them to store-bought clothing and I noticed a few things that always made mine seem a little less polished.

If you want:

  • fashion that looks expensive but no one suspects you made it yourself
  • classic pieces that stand the test of time
  • pieces that are durable and can be worn for years because they’re well made
  • to be proud of your creations both inside and out

then read on, because I’ve been there. I didn’t know a thing about sewing when I started teaching myself, and I’m so excited to share what I’ve learned with you.

Do you want to learn simple but effective tricks without having to go through years of trial and error? Click here and I’ll email you more tips you can use today to get better results.

    Great tips, thank you so much for sharing. I’m just getting back into sewing after a 10 year hiatus and it had never occurred to me how much I might have forgotten until I started. As I was working through my latest project I was having several oh ya moments. As I also remembered how much I really enjoyed sewing I’ll be doing more of it in the future so your tips will be coming in very handy. Thanks

    I really did like your post. I am in the midst of remodeling some tee shirts that are plain and tired looking. I loved some of the tips in your post. I like to be reminded that the fastest way is not always the best way. I will enjoy the reminders that you posted.

    WHY do we have to CLICK through for EVERY ‘tip’ ? is it so the ads get more views ? horrible web site..
    & the elastic in a casing is set to fit the project NOT the ‘looks cheap’ idea. Not completely sure what you meant by that tiny tip.
    Also , when adding elastic, always sew the back area to hold the elastic & keep it from twisting.
