Basic sewing stitches
Have you felt within you to sew your own attire, rather than getting from a store? “Learn to sew” that is an overwhelming process, as it may be concerned with cleave fabric and conked out threads. But when you fashion your own costume, then it’s a skill that you impress you and all others. There are five main stitches available that you need to learn before you sew by your own.
First to go with, is the straight stitch - this as a basic concept is used for sewing woven fabrics together, a key and basic for all stitches (for both hand and machine). Take hand sewing- a single thread is drawn in a straight line through the front side and then taken back, thus bonding 2 pieces of fabric together. The same is done with sewing machine, just by getting a thread from top, through the fabric loop it with the bobbin thread from bottom.
Next comes the basting stitch – this stitch in particular is the same except the length of sew is exceptionally long. If with sewing machine its length is longest and it’s to bond two pieces temporarily.
In the line next comes the Zig Zag Stitch. As to see with it is very self-explanatory, this one sews the thread front and back in a “Z” path. This is used with sewing knits as it goes good for stretchy fabric, more stretchable the fabric, the wider the stitch.
Fourthly the Blind Stitch – thought it’s supported largely with all machines it seems to be best when hand sewed. Sew from back side of the fabric, in a straight or “whisk” fashion but not to show out onto front side. Thus going with its name, it’s the blind stitch, that can’t be seen from front. It has another name as hem stitch as it is best suitable for hemming.
Last but not the least comes the Topstitch - This one goes same as the straight stitch. Only difference is its appliance. This does not bind fabric together, instead used for decoration. Most functioned stitch is on collars, cuffs or facings.
