How To: Sew quickly by hand without using a sewing machine

Sew quickly by hand without using a sewing machine

Sewing by hand can actually go quite quickly if you don't have access to your sewing machine or if it's broken. Hand sewing can also be useful if you're working with especially delicate fabrics, attaching an applique or making a small repair.

This blew my mind! It seems so easy, but I never thought of sewing this way before. The machine is way too expensive for me and sewing usually takes so long. I can't believe it could be so easy! Thank you!

This was very helpful. I was wondering, is it difficult to hand sew a zipper or elastic waist band on to a skirt. I am trying to make a mermaid costume but I don't have a sewing machine and your video has been the most helpful. Thank you.

This is wonderful! I don't have a sewing machine, so seeing this is great.

I'm making a costume last minute (the night before Halloween) and this totally save me!!!!! Thanks!

You're my new hero...don't tell my mum doe. Loving the tutorials to teach my students

Omg thanks I'm doing cosplay and my machine broke thank u
