    I want to use sweaters and sew pieces together to look like a ninja turtle pillow with a textured background . Can i just cut out the pieces i need, or should I satin stitch and then cut them out?

    Do I need a single hole throat plate to sew on knits? I am sewing on a Brother machine.

    For a very fitted garment like a sari blouse, Do the armholes have to be smaller for a sleeveless blouse vs sleeved blouse. I always tend to have this problem of shoulder slipping off when I make a sleeved blouse whereas it stays in place with a sleeveless blouse. Where am I going wrong? Thanks

    I found an ITH Barbie file for Jersey knit. Just sew, trim, and go. Wish me luck!
