Clever Links: July 19th, 2013

It's about time that I shared a couple of interesting tutorials. This time it's all about the stitches and finishings. Enjoy!

Stretchstitch
When working with lycra or any other kind of fabric, you simply can't escape it: the stretchstitch. If you're just like me, you've put sewing with these kind of fabrics because you thought it would be too difficult. The Sewing Loft will take away all your worries with it's tutorial. From now on you'll know what stitch to use and where you can find it on your machine!

French seams
Sewing clothing isn't a challenge to you anymore, or even seams don't have any secrets for you anymore. But did you ever consider how many different seams there are? No? Well then, let me introduce you to the French Seam: a neat finish without serging that will make your piece look professionally crafted inside and out! Visit Grainline and read all about it in her tutorial!

Twinneedles
Undoubtedly I've mentioned these needles before. A twinneedle is something you can't go without when sewing Jerseyfabric or the likes. A Stitching Odyssey had a clear and simple tutorial about how to sew with twinneedles: from using a second bobbin to finishing off. It's worth a try!
