Sewing Curves

The next phase of the Babylock manual walks you through sewing various scenarios. First up is sewing curves. Unfortunately, the picture in the manual is such a sharp curve, that were I sewing it, I would probably stop the stitch and pivot rather than attempt that curve.

So I made my own example curve, sort of a faux pocket. Now, the trick to sewing curves is slow and steady. Slow is fast if it prevents errors that mandate ripping stitches and repeating the process. So keep it slow going around curves—just like driving a car. And you will get a perfectly stitched curve with no puckers.

Perfection!
