How to Sew Knit Fabric With the Tissue Method by Becky of craftingagreenworld.com

August 11, 2017 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments


Have you ever had problems wrangling your knit fabrics? Do they stretch or wiggle? The tension on your machine can cause the bottom piece of fabric to move at a different speed from the top piece, causing wrinkles, ripples, and warping--so it's a great idea to stabilize your fabric before you start. Just use pins and a light colored tissue paper as described in the Tissue Method technique by Becky of craftingagreenworld.com, and you'll eliminate a ton of frustration. We currently have a huge array of knits in our brick-and-mortar store, in fabulous prints and solids in virtually every weight and fiber content. We especially love the zebra print shown above: you'll find it on our Second Floor.
