Start sewing in no time with basics broken down to the simplest form Professor Pincushion's Beginner Guide to Sewing is part textbook, part how-to, and all cheeky fun. Perfect for anyone interested in learning how to make clothes, the book assumes the reader has no sewing experience and breaks everything down to its simplest form, making it easy for anyone to follow along. In typical Professor Pincushion style, the tone is lightened with humor to provide an enjoyable learning experience. Beginning with an overview of sewing tools and supplies, she covers topics like using a sewing machine, reading commercial patterns, and basic garment sewing techniques and gives you five projects to get you started. Five key garment projects to get readers started and build confidence Projects gradually increase in difficulty, allowing new sewers to build up their skills and knowledgeIncludes downloadable patterns and full instructions for pajama shorts and a t-shirt.
