Now that you’ve learned to sew in a straight line, you’re going to need to learn how to sew corners. Sewing corners is something that virtually every garment requires, and it’s really quite easy once you get the hang of it.
First off, download and print this document.
You’ll notice that this practice sheet has two sheets instead of one. That’s because you’re going to learn to sew both 90º corners as well as smaller angles. The method is the same.
Start off by lining up your needle with the beginning of the first square.
Then sew in a straight line almost to the first corner. Use your hand wheel to move the needle until it’s really close to the corner and in the “down” position.
Next, lift the presser foot while the needle is still down.
The needle will now act as your pivot point. Turn the paper on that needle.
Lower the presser foot again.
And continue on the same way.
