I’m a returning beginner to sewing clothes. Do you need a special / different needle for knit? I’m asking this based on an old memory of something stretching and starting to look like a wave as I sewed.
Barbara, use a ballpoint needle, stretch or zigzag stitch setting on the machine, and all-purpose thread for best results. All the best to you as you’re getting back to sewing clothes.
Thanks for featuring my footprint t-shirt! I really love that one, and he does too. I think we’ll have to make another one soon.
Thanks Rachel! I see several tutorials I am excited to try!!
