Well here it is, our finished summer sewalong:
All we had left to do this week was the hem. To prevent fraying, zigzag or serge your raw edge. Follow the steps below to achieve a great hem:
For more guidance we have a sewing resource card on hems.
If you’ve missed out don’t worry, you can visit our sewlong page for all the previous posts. Better still, why not join our next summer sewalong?
Sewalongs are a great way to access support for your next sewing project:
- Think of a sewalong as the modern equivalent of a quilting or sewing bee. Instead of us going over to each other’s houses to work on a quilt together, we’re sewing along together digitally.
- There is no official sign-up to participate in the types of sewalongs we host. It’s nice when you leave comments on the announcement blog post, saying you’re in, but you can participate completely anonymously if you’d like.
- We provide a schedule of Saturday dates for the sewalong, but feel free to go as fast or as slow as you’d like. We will not remove any of the posts pertaining to the sewalong as long as this blog exists. So if you’re too busy to join us now, you can always revisit this at a more convenient date.
- Our Flickr group is a great place to post progress photos and seek opinions from your hosts and fellow sewalongers. If you’re not on Flickr yet, please think about joining, if only just to provide comments and help to others.
