WOVEN SEAM – (With Needle)
Woven seam is another way to create invisible seam. It can be used to join granny squares or other pieces, which are made in rows. It can only be used on straight edges, therefore pieces can be joined stitches by stitches or rows by rows using this seam. Apt seam for using in baby garments and fine work. Since this is used on the straight edges, the appearance is a flatter finish.
- Stitch by Stitch– Stitch by stitch seam is made horizontal or to join granny squares. Put the pieces side by side with right side facing up. Insert the needle in one corner stitch and take it out on the edge through the next stitch. Refer the marked needle movement in the below image.
Even though i used a contrast color yarn for the seam,yet it becomes completely invisible after tightening the yarn. The process of tightening the tension of the yarn has to be done very carefully to avoid puckering. Refer below images to understand the points.
2. Joining rows by rows/ Vertical seams – To join pieces row by row, put the 2 pieces together with right sides up. Match edges and insert the needle in the corner stitch of piece#1, and take it out through the next stitch. Refer the marked needle movement in the below image.
Before tightening the sewing yarn, stitches will appear as shown in the below image.
Pull the yarn and tighten the tension carefully to avoid puckering. Although the seam has flat appearance when done stitches by stitches, yet it does form a slight ridge when done rows by rows.
