   Sewing 101: Lesson 7 – Measuring fabric Posted by Jo 
July 8, 2010

It has been a while, but we’ve finally got another installment of our Sewing 101 video tutorial series for you! We realized that no matter what project you’re working on, it starts with measuring and cutting fabric, and this can be challenging for a new sewer. In this video, Chica will use a simple tablecloth example to show me how to measure and cut my fabric to the right size. You might have to watch this one a couple times, because there’s a lot of detail, but we think you’ll find it really helpful.

Warning – this video contains MATH! :)

If you can’t see the video above, you can view it directly here.
