Sewing machine practice sheets

Pattern Description:

Do you have a sewing machine at home? Perhaps one you inherited, were given as a gift, or even one you bought in a fit of excitement, and then never got round to using. Don't let that precious resource go to waste. Did you know that sewing is having a resurgence of popularity?

If you've not used a sewing machine or are a bit rusty, then you'll want to practice your stitches before tackling some real projects. Did you know that your sewing machine doesn't just sew fabric? You can sew paper too! In fact, it's the ideal way to start out and practice.

Why not print out these Sewing Machine Practice Sheets and give it a try? These sheets are also a fun way to teach children to learn how to use the machine, control speed, turn corners and sew shapes. It's a great way to learn and practice without using up your fabric until you are ready.

Includes 6 sheets for you to practice:
* Straight line stitching
* Zig-zag stitches
* Turning corners at right angles, left and right
* Turning other corners and points
* Sewing curves and circles

Have some fun while you learn!

Materials:

  • Just a basic sewing machine to get you started

You Will Also Need:

  • Thread in any color
