Depending on the type of machine you have, your spool holder might be horizontal or it might be vertical. Bobbin is basically a spindle that is wound with thread. You have to wind the bobbin with thread and fit it into the bobbin case which is found under the needle plate.
Your sewing machine also has different stitch adjustments to help determine stitch length for each stitch, the amount of tension needed to make sure the stitches come through properly, and the different types of stitches if you have the type of sewing machine that does different stitch types.
The take up lever controls the thread tension. If the thread tension isn't at its proper level the threads will knot up, jamming the sewing machine.
You can check with a nearby sewing shop to see if they have any classes or know anyone willing to help you get set up with your sewing machine, or you can ask a knowledgeable family member or friend. When you're just beginning with making clothes you'll want to start out with simple designs, otherwise it's easy to get frustrated and quit.
It's best to start with skirts, because these are easier to make than say a 3-piece suit and they require you to take fewer measurements. When you're first starting, try to avoid making clothes with buttons or zippers. Do aprons or pajamas with elastic bands.
Once you've gotten the hang of your tools and your sewing machine, then you can start advancing. The best way to make your final piece the best it can possibly be is to make test clothes beforehand so you can tweak your design and make any changes to the final piece as you see fit. It's recommended to use scraps from the same fabric as the final piece. Take the appropriate measurements needed to make a pattern.
Even if you're making clothing from a pattern that you found somewhere, instead of creating one yourself, you're still going to need to take your measurements so that the clothes will fit you when you're finished.
For trousers, you will need the following measurements: For shorts, use the trouser measurements you have, only shortening the pant length to the desired length. For shirts, you will need the following measurements: For skirts, you simply need waist and hip measurements. The length and fullness of the skirt will vary depending on what type of skirt you want to make.
Sketch a pattern for your garment using the measurements you took. Use a similar garment as a guide for the appropriate pattern design and layout.
There are lots of good places you can find pattern ideas. Lay your chosen fabric out on a large, flat surface and place the pattern pieces on the fabric. Deciding how to lay your pattern pieces out will take some careful planning.
Fold the fabric, right sides facing together, matching selvage to selvage. The selvage is the finished edges of the fabric that keep it from unraveling. Folding it like this will provide for easy cutting of double pattern pieces sleeves, legs, etc.
If you have large pattern pieces that are symmetrical and can be folded down the middle shirt back, for instance , then fold the pattern piece down the center and pin the folded part of the pattern on the folded edge of the fabric. This saves cutting effort and ensures the cut fabric piece is perfectly symmetrical. To make clothing that hugs the body, it is best to lay pattern pieces on the bias at a 45 degree angle to the folded edge. To sew a garment that has no stretch, place the pattern pieces at a 90 degree angle to the folded edge.
Iron any wrinkles out of your fabric. You have to make sure that your fabric is wrinkle-free otherwise it can screw up your final piece, if the wrinkles make the fabric come out of alignment. Pin pattern pieces to the fabric. This will tell you wear to cut. Make sure that it is still wrinkle-free and that the pattern pieces and the fabric are aligned properly. Cut fabric according to pattern. Be sure to cut through both layers of fabric. Remove paper pattern from fabric pattern pieces.
You're ready to get started with the sewing process. Pin the fabric pieces together along the seam edges. Determine which edges you must seam together and pin the 2 fabric pieces together, right sides facing together, at the seam edges. Insert the pins at a 90 degree angle from the edge so you don't have to remove them as you sew a garment. Sew the fabric pieces together, 1 edge at a time and from 1 end to the other, until you have a completely constructed garment.
This will take time, so try to be patient as you work. If you mess up at all, don't worry, that's what your seam ripper is for. Use your sewing machine properly. You need to make sure that you have the correct needle for the task and the correct thread. Different types of thread and different types of needles work best with different types of fabric. You'll need different techniques for animal fiber fabrics like silk or wool or alpaca, as opposed to natural fibers like cotton or flax and synthetic fibers like rayon or polyester.
Make sure that you know the type of fabric you're using and what type of needle and thread will work best with it. Gently guide the fabric through the machine. Don't push or pull your project, because the machine is supposed to do that itself and you can clog the sewing machine or ruin your garment. Hem the edges of your garment.
Make clothing complete with clean, finished edges. Fold the edge up, wrong side facing in, to the desired width of the hem and press the fold together. Fold the pressed edge up 1 more time and press again. Now, Sew along the top folded edge of the hem, inside of the garment. Attach the finishing touches. This could be anything from buttons, elastic, zippers to various fun embroidery or special stitches.
The better you get at sewing and making your own clothes the more creative you can get with adding those finishing touches. Since every style of clothing is a bit different, there are some key points for each that are good to remember when you're choosing what clothes you want to make and how you want to make those clothes. You'll need to decide which skirt you want to try out.
You can make this in about an hour and they are fun, comfortable and easy to wear. Choose a flattering trouser pattern. Since trousers are incredibly versatile and can be made out of just about any fabric, they are a great project to do once you've gotten the basics down.
You can make them more easily by making trousers that have an elastic waistband, or you could get more complicated with zippers and buttons and waistbands. The general order that you sew a pair of jeans or other trousers is: Again there are tons of different kinds of dresses to make, from some short, sweet summer cotton, to a long flowing ballgown. Dresses can be more complicated than, say, a skirt, so you'll want to hold off making one of these until you've got the basics down.
The general order that you want to sew a one piece dress is: Then you join the skirt bottom to the bodice top of dress at the waistline, attach zipper or buttons holes, hem. Although fun to make, these can be a bit more complicated, since you'll need to do buttons and sew on curves since you're sewing along the lines made by your neck and your shoulders.
There are also more patterning pieces that you will have to deal with. The easiest type of top to make is a throw over knit top without buttons or pockets. The general order that you want to sew a shirt or a jacket is: Choose a jacket style. Jackets and coats are one of the more complicated clothes-making projects. They are something you will want to hold off on making until you've gotten a good amount of experience since they include buttons and pockets, working on contours rather than straight lines, and are made from lots of patterning pieces.
The easiest jacket type is one that doesn't have a lining or that doesn't have to be sewn into sleeves. It depends on what you want to do. Cotton is a good go-to fabric for a basic dress, and is easy to work with for beginners. Silk looks fancier but is harder to work with. Two-way or four-way stretch fabrics like Spandex are good for dance-wear. Discuss your options with the fabric retailer.
