Does this happen to you?

P1050453This happens to me all the time. Even when using a leader, as I did this time, the sewing machine chews up the beginning of the fabric.

I have the answer


This small piece of paper can avoid all these hassles. This is what I worked out. I place the fabric to be sewed on the edge of a small piece of photocopy paper, slide it under the presser foot and start sewing. It’s like magic! It sews beautifully and when you’ve finished you just remove it like you would if you were foundation paper piecing.
