Okay. I'm not great at sewing, but I'm dying to be. I always have a hard time sewing special shapes, especially rounded shapes, like a rounded purse or, in particular with sewing little pieces onto fabric.
Let me see if I can be more clear:
Let's say I cut out a little bird shape out of felt to sew on top of a purse. Is there any special way to do it, other than by hand? I have tried sewing shapes on before with my machine, but I don't feel like I have control, going at the speed a sewing machine goes at. All my stitching then appears sloppy. Same goes for rounded purses. Usually my stitching is more unruly and inconsistent. I want a clean stitch all around. Any suggestions? Or does it just take years of practice to get the hang of it?
