Basic techniques for sewing using hands or machines
Any job if we already know the basic techniques, then everything will seem easy. Likewise with sewing. To be able to sew properly, we need to know the basics first, so that sewing becomes a fun job, especially for those who are just starting to learn to sew.
Basic sewing techniques that need to be studied, including the following:
1. Basics Sewing Techniques using Hands
- To start sewing by hand, we first prepare the materials and equipment.
- To start sewing by hand, first insert the yarn into the needle. Cut it as necessary. Do not take too long, because the yarn will be easily tangled. Pull one side of the thread to make it longer than the other and then we prepare the material and equipment.
- Create a vertex on the side of the long thread. Knots do not need to be large, which is important enough to hold the yarn from escaping when pierced on the fabric.
- Needle stitching from the bottom of the fabric. Start making stitches as needed. If it's your first time sewing, try making a simple stitch first.
- To end the sewing, create a stitch knot on the back of the fabric. Knot stitches can be repeated up to twice.
- Cut the yarn, but don't get too edge.
- If you are skilled at sewing, you can try sewing your own clothes.
That's the basic technique of sewing clothes by hand. And most importantly, sewing the hands must be done diligently and neatly in order for the results to be good.
