Sew along your tracing line,or if you prefer, follow your seam allowance. Start from the pre-hole line.

Tip - Seam Guide


It's been a while since last i update this blog. A few weeks ago,i was asking around about the perfect seam on a group in FB and a friend said that they found about this method,cheap n it works. Ok,simple tips n trick to have an adjustable seam guide.

Get yourself a strip magnet used on white board or fridge. Just place the strip magnet on the bed of your machine, according to the size you desire. If you are using a portable,  usually the whole body is made out of plastic,so there is a small piece of steel area where you can place it. You can put it on left or right side, whichever suits your sewing style. Happy Sewing!

The green thingy is a strip magnet-use as seam guide
