Sewing 101 is an excellent guide for anyone new to sewing and sewing enthusiasts.
This book includes DIY projects such as sewing garments and Home Décor and offers tips and techniques on sewing.
It starts with the basics—the sewing machine and its accessories—Bobbins, Presser Feet. The author guides you on how to insert the needle, wind the Bobbin, thread the needle and so on. The reader will learn other techniques such as how to balance tension, Sew a seam (and special seams), Hand Stitches, and Hand Hems.
From there the book progresses to Hand-sewing supplies ( such as threads, needles), measuring and marking tools, cutting tools (scissors), pressing tools, and additional materials like cutting boards, elastics, bodkin, basting tape and more.
This section also covers types of fabrics, guidelines on choosing the right one—and tips on how to store them.
Another section introduces patterns— selecting a pattern, types of patterns, inside the pattern, pattern layout and more.
The subsequent chapters cover sewing projects (skirts, jackets, apron etc) and Home décor—Raw-edge Fland Pillows. Knife-edge pillows, pillowcases, baby blankets, tablecloths, Roman shade and more.
The easy-to-follow instructions are accompanied by photos to guide the reader. Highly recommend.
