Sewing Tutorials

As I master a new technique or learn a new sewing skill, I like to share it with you, and keep a record here so I can remind myself again later on!  I also love to record sewing videos, so do check out the video tutorials page as well.

Here are all of my sewing tutorials organised into one place.  I hope you find what you are looking for.

    Many for beginners include sewing machine parts and accessories like screws, embroidery needles, and rubber bands that you can use for sewing projects. Some books will give you detailed instructions on how to use the sewing machine and sewing fabrics.

      Hi, Daniel, not sure what you mean? do you want to design some sweatpants? or do you want me to do it?

  8. Duane Wiley says:

    Is there a tutorial for refashioning a large scarf into a top? Either I missed it or something! I saw it on today or yesterday’s email but it was atop of the culottes pattern picture. Thanks

  9. Judy says:

    I am attempting the walking shorts pattern. It seems the hip measurements are way big! As my hip measures just 5 inches bigger than waist I’m thinking the very greater than 30 inches bigger in hips must be an error. I signed up to get the tutorials and didn’t see part two?

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Is not an error, it is the way a designed them. So perhaps the pattern is not for your body type.

  10. Ellen says:

    I can’t find the tutorial for the walking shorts pattern

  11. Susie says:

    These tutorials are AMAZING!!! Thanks for sharing this all for free! I would love to see a video about tips for sewing with knit fabrics, using a regular sewing machine and a serger for finishing. Do you have any plans to make a video for this?

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Hi Susie, thanks for the suggestion, I am editing a video for a sport bra that will cover just that. Keep tuned in please.

    I have been reading your articles and watching your videos for about 3 yrs. I admire how you have blossomed in your efforts and grown in your skills. I would greatly appreciate if you would try drafting kids school uniforms. You most likely need a smaller Penelope, but I have no doubt you will find a way.I have been searching for a girls V neck pleated jumper pattern on line without success. Debby,I love your teaching style.
