    Pleat guide - help please!

    Hi Penelope The lines are to guide you when making the fold of the pleat. mark on yr fabric the two marked points from the pattern for each pleat. fold the fabric from one mark to the other in the direction you want your pleat to lie. Pin the pleat into place and baste within your seam allowance to hold it in place. then sew down the top of each pleat, usually about 2inches or so. If I can help in any other way give me a shout. good luck xx

  9. Hi everyone I have just finished sewing a little girls top for my g/daughter Eden using a lovely pattern from issue 4 of Sew Magazine. It was lovely to make and I'm going to be making lots for the summer. The little red dress I made for Eden to wear to my daughters '50's' themed party. Thanks for looking love sue xxx
  10. Hi everyone my daughter is having a 50's themed 21st birthday party tomorrow and I have made an outfit for my 2yr old granddaughter to wear. I made her a little dress with a tulle underskirt, she could not stop twirling and dancing when she tried it on lol. With the rest of the fabric I made a little bag nice and squishy. With a fleece interfacing and a little hairband to finish off her look. The fabric only cost a few pounds and she loves it I hope she never gets sick of me making stuff for her.

    Singer machines bobbin help

    Hi, I remember having a similar problem once and I unscrewed the foot plate under the needle and I was astonished to discover lots of fluff etc. Once I gave it a good clean out I popped a new needle in and it worked great. Hope that helps luv sue x

    Sew-on interfacing question

    Hi, Knit and flee Sew in interfacing does not really have a wrong side. The wrong side on iron on interfacing is the adhesive that glues it to the fabric. if I was you I would press your sew in interfacing on a low heat and perhaps use a pressing cloth too. Good luck with your sewing, I have been sewing for about 18mths now and i LOVEIT
