Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

This video demonstrates how to clip curves. Definitely a necessary technique when you sew clothing or anything with rounded seams or edges.

Clip a "V" in inside curves to reduce bulk. Outside curves do not need a "V" cut in them. Clip a straight line perpendicular to the seam, being careful to cut close but not through the seam.

I suggest using the scissor point only to clip curves. I've seen many of my students accidently cut beyond the stitching line.

NEVER CLIP CURVES USING REGULAR LENGTH SCISSORS! You will ruin a project if you follow this video. Invest in short sharp scissors. That way you can clip without the tips even extending beyond the seam stitching.

You will eventually ruin your project by cutting into the seam line using this method.
