Sewing Knits vs Sewing Wovens Sewing knits is slightly more challenging than sewing woven fabrics. For one, knits have varying degrees of stretch. We need to tame the stretch to avoid wavy, and sometimes inaccurate, seams. As long as we aren’t stretching the fabric during sewing, knits can easily be tamed.

Serger Snack Pouches These serger snack pouches are quick projects that are made even quicker using a serger. The snack pouch edges are completely enclosed in the serger stitches, so there’s no need for finishing raw edges any other way. There’s no need to turn the project right side out or close any openings with hand sewing. To begin, look to this tutorial from Baby Lock, the “king” of sergers. But, take it a step further by using laminated cotton or oilcloth fabric for the lining. This makes for a snack pouch that’s easily cleaned by wiping with a disinfectant wipe or rinsed under water aft ..read more
