My most popular sewing tutorials

Since I began blogging I’ve done around 70 sewing tutorials (!) That’s a lot, but I guess it makes sense because I love sharing sewing tips that I’ve gathered over the years. And the sewing internet community is the single best thing that has ever happened to my own skills – I’ve learned so much from fellow sewing enthusiasts. So I thought I should share a few of my most viewed sewing tutorials.

Sewing invisible hems on knits

Ribbing calculator

The ribbing calculator

Tool: The ribbing calculator
For calculating ribbing length and notches. Also great for fold-over and lingerie elastic. I’ve programmed this calculator myself and use it all the time for my own knit sewing. This one I feel especially proud about since this was pretty much the first time I coded something!
