Music Hello everyone!Welcome back to stitching MadeEasy It’s the 5th day of sewing course and we’re teaching you to make 6 basic seams. Basic stitches/seams have great importance in sewing,before you get perfection in dress designing you need to learn these basic stitches. Before we start the tutorial we request you to subscribe this channel. And share this video as much as possible. Let’s get started! First of all we’ll start with Running stitch. The stitch is worked by passing the needle in and out of the fabric. The running stitch or straight stitch is the basic stitch in hand-sewing and embroidery, on which all other forms of sewing are based.The easiest of all stitches/seams. It was a longer stitch. Now I’ll show you rather short stitch than the earlier. We’ll move towards Hem stitch or hemstitch now. Make a fold approximately one-quater inch wide along the long edge of the fabric. Then make another fold the width of the hem. Start with a threaded needle with a knot at one end.Insert the needle into the folded edge coming out on the crease line. Next directly across from where the thread was anchored use tip of the needle to pick up a few threads at the fabric. Hem stitch is used under neck lines, Sleeve edge foldings When you don’t want to use sewing machine Then you hem-stitch the fabric. There are two ways for hem stitching your fabric This was the first way. Next I’ll show you the second way of hem-stitching. Small stitches must be seen on the opposite side. I have used a double thread in the needle So you can see stitching well in the camera. Now I’ll show you the second hem stitch which is also called(Slip stitch).
Make a fold approximately one-quater inch wide along the long edge of the fabric. Then make another fold the width of the hem. Start with a threaded needle with a knot at one end. Insert the needle into the folded edge coming out on the crease line. Next directly across from where the thread was anchored use tip of the needle to pick up a few threads at the fabric. Now go back directly across to the folded hem side and insert the needle into the folded edge. and tunnel the needle for about a quater inch through the fold coming out on the crease line.The thread is hidden. Keep repeating these steps. Now the blanket stitch The blanket stitch is a stitch used to reinforce the edge of thick materials. To work blanket stitch, first bring the thread up just below the edge of the fabric and take a diagonal stitch to the right, about 3mm in from fabric edge Bring the needle out directly below again, just below the edge of the fabric. Loop the thread around the needle where it emerges and pull the thread taut. The blanket stitch is commonly used as a decorative stitch on an array of garments. Besides blankets, it is used on sweaters, home furnishings, pillows, and much more. Now it’s the French seam. It is also called invisible or hidden seam A French seam is actually a method for making a double seam that is used to hide the rough edges of fabric. First join two edges and make a straight seam Now trim off the excessive cloth Trimming like this would make it easy to get another seam over it. Fold and press it Now stitch over it. we are using contrasting thread so you can see the seam properly. But you must use thread the same color as the fabric the seam will be almost invisible. As you can see this is the back side You can’t see any thread or stitch here.It’s stitched very well. And on the other side you won’t be able to see any seam here. For that it is called hidden stitch. French seaming is most often used when making articles of clothing As you can see It’s the flat fell seam Take a look at your jeans or at a men’s dress shirt, and you’ll spot flat fell seams. On the outside of the garment there is a pair of stitch lines Let’s do it! I have a pair of fabric Join and leave one piece half an inch from this side Both shouldn’t be equal Now sew it on the edge leaving the lower cloth half an inch a side Fold the extended side under, tucking the raw edge into the fold. Press the fold, making sure that the raw edge is fully tucked under and that the flap left is the same width along the seam. Line up your fabric in your machine so the stitching is close to the fold. Stitch along the edge of the fold, trapping all the raw edges inside. It is very similar to the french seam The difference is that it is flat and felled Last stitch that we’re covering today is Over lock Or you can even say over casting stitch First make a straight seam Let us change the thread so you can see well Overcast stitch is one of several types of sewing stitches, this type being used to enclose a raw, or unfinished, seam or edge There are million of ways to over cast your fabric,but I am gonna show you only two of them One with sewing machine and one by hand. Fold and press the sides First I’ll show you using sewing machine Make a straight seam Right on the edge of the fold This is over casting with sewing machine. Next we’ll do manually Fold the edge and insert needle through the fabric just below the raw edge. Pass the needle from the backside to the front side so the knot is hidden underneath. Loop the thread over the edge and pass the needle through the fabric from back to front, a small distance to the side of the original stitch. This stitch is easiest done when working from right to left. Be sure not to pull the threads so tight as to crimp the fabric. It should be flat and smooth on the edge.
