To test the thread tension I draw a couple of numbered lines (1 to &) on a piece of fabric (same as the project). I start sew the first line with my upper thread tension on 1, then I change my tension to 2 and sew the zig-zag line. I continue to 6 and then I can immediately see what gives the best result. This sample I make with both the straight stitch as well as a zigzag stitch.

My biggest hobby and passion is to design and make garments. I love to combine different fabrics and I am trying to sew “on the edge and beyond” using materials I never thought of using in projects. For example, I use wire on the sewing machine so I can easily make beautiful flowers with a 3D effect and with the flowers I make collages. This is how I fell in love with BSR.
