What is the statement of sewing ability?
Sewing is a skill for people of all ages, in all occupations, and from all walks of life. From making small repairs to making complete wardrobes, sewing provides for our basic, and not so basic, clothing needs. Sewing can also produce knapsacks and stuffed toys, practical articles and gifts.
How do you measure fabric for cutting?
Lay your fabric down in front of you and measure from one of the straight edges, over the amount that you need and begin cutting. For example, I wanted to make a 14 inch square…so I placed the end of my ruler all the way up against the right edge (which is already straight) and measured over to the left 14 inches.
What happens if you cut a piece of cloth?
Answer: Cutting of a cloth piece is a physical change because it does not change the chemical composition of cloth and the change is only in the state, size, shape, colour, texture or the smell of some or all of the substances that undergo a physical change.
What is the first step to do before laying the patterns over the fabric?
