Yesterday I went to Carol’s house to help her with seaming her Mandy’s Heart sweater. Carol had never sewn up knitted seams before! I showed her the first few stitches and the rest she did completely by herself. After just 5 minutes she was sewing up her own perfect seams.
Look how happy she is!
And look at how perfect her seams are!
The above photo is Carol sewing in a sleeve, which is normally the part people are most afraid of. Look how easy this is! Don’t be afraid of the seam. It’s adds strength and almost no bulk at all if done right. By the end of the afternoon Carol couldn’t keep her eyes or hands off her impeccable seams and was just so pleased with herself. Good for you!
By the way, only 5 more days until Mandy’s Heart sweater and sock patterns are released. Stay tuned!
