How to Help your Daughter's Sewing Look Professional


There are 6 things to teach a child to help their sewing look better.  Here they are in order of importance.

  • Use PINS!
  • Measure, and re-measure
  • Iron the seams.  Do not skip this step, it really makes a huge difference.
  • Push out corners with the edge of a ruler or a dull pencil.  Don't use anything sharp or you'll risk punching a hole.
  • Use a seam ripper if you need to.  Don't just shrug and move on.  If you need to start over on a part of the project, you may have to put the project down and come back to it another day, so as not to discourage your child.
  • Clip all the stray threads.
