Strait Line

How can I sew a strait line?

I cant sew a strait line on my sewing machine.
How can I?

Watch the edge of the fabric against the guide mark... don't watch the needle.

And practice sewing straight lines by sewing on sheets of paper -- unthread the machine, put a piece of junk mail under the presser foot and sew. At the corner, put the needle down into the paper/fabric, raise the presser foot, and turn the corner, lower the presser foot and continue to sew.

When you're happy sewing straight lines, cut the edge of some paper into gentle curves and repeat the exercise till you can sew inside and outside curves at a constant seam allowance. When you're happy with that, try the same exercises on fabric.

If you continue to have trouble with your sewing machine, try another and see if you're any better with that machine. Or have someone who is experienced sew on your machine for a test strip or two. It is possible to have feed dogs and presser foot not be parallel to each other, which means one set of feed dogs pulls harder than the other. If this is the case with your machine, a sewing machine mechanic can make that adjustment for you.

The paper sewing exercise is one I make any beginner I teach do -- paper is easier to handle than fabric, and that way, you get to work on one skill at a time.

The other thing to try to do while you're practicing is to sew faster. It's usually easier to sew a straight line when you can feel the wind in your hair than when you're sewing
