I'm kind of liking these tidbit Tuesdays, what about you? Do you have one you'd like to share? Great! Just email me your tip and I'll feature it here on my blog! :)
On to today's tip...
Have you ever sewn a bunch of strips together and by the time you are done pressing them all, you find that one end sort of "curves"? It makes sub-cutting them a pain in the you know what, doesn't it?
The next time you are sewing strips, try sewing the strips in opposite directions. Change the direction with each strip. When I start, I usually put a pin in the top of my first set of strips so I know which is the top to keep track of the direction I am going. See the photo below with the arrows to better understand what I mean. :)
I wish I could remember where I heard this before because it works for me even though I don't really understand why it makes a difference which way you sew it, but hey, it works so I thought I'd share it with you! :)
Also, don't forget about my giveaway that posted yesterday and will close on 05-20-10 and a winner will be chosen at random on 05-21-10!
