"Somewhere in their sewing journey, many aspiring sewers become afraid or demotivated because the project did not turn out the way they wanted. A big pile of unfinished garments is a dead give away! Our brain is trained to look for inconsistencies and it is how we judge beauty. Unconsciously, we know something is off and we give up before we finish. The reason for this doomed journey starts at the fabric store but is often made worse by how we end up cutting the fabric. Here are my top 5 mistakes to avoid when cutting fabric."

Excellent information, anod all these tips should be basic information. Washing and drying fabric before sewing, is such a basic thing, for those types of fabrics like cotton, that will be washed repeatedly. Why waste all that hard work of sewing only to have the item shrink, especially for clothing items. Thank you for the great guidelines.

This is such useful information. Even if you are a seasoned sewist, a refresher can never hurt. Sign up for our free newsletter to see this featured next week along with other sewing hacks that will change your life!
