Did you know that on some of the Brother machines you can sew in many directions without turning the fabric? Today I want to show you how easy it is to use directional sewing for attaching straps. This would be ideal for strengthening the straps on the Canvas Tote Bag Sewalong.
- Brother DreamWeaver XE VM6200D
- Multi-Directional Sewing
You will find all the stitches by clicking the Multi-Directional Sewing icon on the stitch selection screen.
Here you will see all stitches available: sewing left, right, forward, backward, and diagonally. Notice these stitches can be with a straight stitch or a zigzag stitch – I see a lot of possibilities!
There is a video below to show how I attach my straps and here is a quick rundown. I am using a piece of canvas fabric and grosgrain ribbon for this demo, so ignore the frayed raw edges
