Ahsoka leggings part two!
So you got your leggings ready and cut out...but how do you sew those diamonds? They need to be done before stitching each leg together otherwise you may have a hard time moving on the machine.
1:, make a small 1/4” cut at each corner to release your seam allowance.
2: fold the allowances back to the WRONG side. Press if your material allows it. Otherwise go straight to pinning/using your handy clips.
3: turn over to view right side. Place tear away stabilizer behind each diamond and pin. I like to pin with the folded edge, pinhead nearest to me, to cover more ground and easily remove the pins as I stitch. DONT RUN OVER THE PINS! Bad things happen.
4: get ready to sew! Set your machine for stretch materials. It looks like ⚡️ (more on this later today!)
5: Needle down in the fabric to hold your place! Start slow! Needle down at the points when you pivot the corners.
Note that you certainly don’t have to use stabilizer but consider how small your seam allowance is and you’re stitching at 1/8” or so...you mayyyyy find that little amount of fabric getting sucked into the throat plate and making you cry. So to avoid my mistakes: learn from them! Use something to support your fabric for a clean, perfect stitch. 💕
