Hi all!! Donna Beth here.
Have you ever been super frustrated with keeping your seam straight and the right width? I don’t have the best eyes or lighting where my sewing machine is, as well as getting headaches easily from eye strain. So 🙌 me!!! I have!!! I’m sure others have already thought of this hack, and it’s probably been around as long as rubber bands have, but it just came to me this morning while sewing.
Simply add a rubber band around the arm of your sewing machine where you want the edge of your fabric after it’s sewn…. then you have a line to follow the whole way and because it’s a rubber band, it’s hard to move! It’ll stay steady for you!
I can’t contain my glee at finding this! I hope this inspires you to continue to create things you love!
