Tips for Fabric Coiling - Machine Sewing

  1. Use a Thread Color the same color as your pattern and not the background.
  2. If machine sewing, after tailing off your coil, only cut one thread short. Pull some thread from the spool and then cut with a length of thread attached to your project. Thread through a hand sewing needle. Then hand sew the tail snug and tight to the last coil to help blending in the end point.
  3. Walmart is a good place to find 3/16" fabric clothesline. It is half the price there than at my local hardware store.
  4. In a pinch, the top of a glue stick makes a great substitute for a thimble.

I will be adding to the list as I discover useful tips for fabric coiling.

Books reviews on fabric coiling. I have just bought a second book on fabric coiling. I will review them both books about fabric coiling in my blog once I have had a chance to read the second book.
