Why You Should Learn to Sew

In my opinion, everyone should experience the joy and satisfaction that comes with making your own 'stuff'!

There is nothing like the feeling of wearing you own nicely constructed clothing or knowing how much money you saved by mending a garment as opposed to replacing it.

And it's no small feat to keep clothing out of our already taxed landfills.

Sewers can help keep our natural resources healthy by recycling and upcycling soft goods instead of trashing them.

The sewing exercises below are designed for beginning sewers who are somewhat comfortable with operating a sewing machines.

I'll be working on more elementary posts and videos that will show all elements of getting started sewing.

In the meantime, enjoy and happy sewing!

7 Pages of Easy Sewing Exercises For Beginner Sewers Video

In this video I show you how to approach corners when sewing by 'pivoting' your sewing exercise sheet.

Pivoting simple means turning your fabric or in this case sheet of paper so that your needle is in the down position in order to easily turn your fabric or paper.

To pivot, you slow your sewing as you approach a corner, sink your needle, lift your presser foot, turn your fabric (or paper), drop your presser foot and continue sewing.

The video below will show you how easy this technique is.

Pivoting your fabric creates beautiful corners and edges with ease.

Below you'll find examples of the seven pages of sewing exercises that you can print out and use to practice your stitching.

While sewing garments, home decor and accessories involves an incredible amount of creativity and artistry, sewing itself is actually a very rote process.

That is, anyone who takes the time to practice can and will become a very proficient sewer.

Consider all of the opportunities that excellent sewing skills provide.

Sewing jobs, expenses saved on mending items, sewing clothing and needed personal items, as well as the therapeutic nature of calmly sewing on the sewing machine are all benefits to learning how to sew.

I hope you enjoy using these sewing exercises below to begin your path to sewing proficiency.

To get started on your sewing exercises, click on the link below to open up the seven pages of designs in a new tab on your computer.

Next, print each page onto a piece of printer paper.

I recommend using GOOS(e) (good on one side) paper, otherwise known as scratch paper for this project. 

Since you'll be sewing onto the paper, it's nice to be able to use up some of that scratch paper that's been accumulating on your desk, right?

With paper in hand, you're ready to sew.

Start by setting up you sewing machine to its basic settings.

Familiarize yourself a few important elements to your own sewing machine before you get started, including:

  • Power source and cord
  • On/Off switch
  • Bobbin threading and placing the bobbin in your machine
  • Threading your machine and needle
  • Stitch length
  • Adjusting bobbin tension
  • Machine speed adjustment, if applicable
  • Foot pedal
  • Fly wheel or hand wheel for pivoting at corners

When you're ready to begin, have at it and enjoy!
