Word combos. So. Much. Fun!
This one brings a smile to my face and I honestly wish I would’ve thought of it.
Isn’t it perfect?!
Well, today’s Learn to Sew class is all about the SEWCABULARY you need to know in order to read a pattern and make your sewing adventure much more fun.
It seems like it would be simple to just follow the instructions, but reading pattern directions can be a bit like reading a foreign language if you don’t know where to start and some of the sewing vocabulary.

Hi Beth, The Reading a Pattern link points to the pattern marking post from last week. Thought that you would want to know 🙂
Thank you! I’ll go in right now and fix that!

These are GREAT tutorials! I bought a sewing machine because I decided I was going to learn to sew…then read, and read, and watched YouTube, and read some more – trying things as I went. In case you’re wondering, I did read the owners manual for my sewing machine too – because I had no idea how to even thread the thing! For someone like me, this kind of info is invaluable! Thanks for posting to take the frustration out of the learning curve so more people will fall in love with sewing the way I have!
Awwwwwww! Thanks! That is exactly why I put this series together. I wanted to help make the learning curve a little easier. Your comment really brightened my day! PS> I love your name: SewGiddy it’s Sew Cute!
Beth, I’m linking to your Learning to Sew Series. I thought it was great. I’ve had so many people ask if I teach sewing and this is great. (So many of them are first time Grandmas with the time to do it.) The post will be tomorrow at 10am central.
Thanks for helping to get the word out there, Mary!!!
I “sew” needed this (see what I did there?) 😉 I am terrrrrrible at rewarding sewing patterns! I have always been convinced if I could I would have an amazing wardrobe. 😉 thanks so much for sharing!
Hi Courtney, you are “sew” funny!!! 🙂
