I've sewn for...uh, lots and lots of years (too many to mention), but I'm still learning new tricks to make this sewing thing I enjoy so much just a little easier. For years I settled for "almost there" seams that, well...almost met. Then a few months ago I was stalking a few blogs and ran across a video by Cristy Fincher that showed how to glue those seams before sewing. I didn't have the glue she used, but I had some Tombow glue on hand (Quilt Taffy carries it) so I used it to see if this method really worked (I'm sure this isn't new to most of you, but I'm okay being an old dog that CAN learn new tricks.)
Iron your seams in opposite directions
(this will let them meet so much better when you glue them together.)
Put a little dab of glue on one side just at the seam and lay the other piece on top, matching
seams. Push the seams into each other so they meet (this is where ironing them in
opposite directions helps a lot.) Let it dry a few minutes.
Sew them. Iron them. No pins!
See! They are pretty darn perfect in meeting up. Love it!
The project I used to practice this method is for the Ho Ho Ho Blog Hop.
Come back on July 31st to see how all my squares meet each other.
