Sewing Tote Bags

By Danny Liddle of "The Floating Space Dogs"


At stem club, my group have been using the sewing machines to make our own tote bags. We had to use the zigzag stitch and the straight stitch.



I had never used a sewing machine before so it was a new experience.  I learned that you need to reverse stitch at the start and end of any line you sew otherwise the stitch will come apart.



To start with, it was quite difficult to get the technique right but by the end of this project I was really getting the hang of it. Using a sewing machine is definitely a good thing to know how to do because there are a lot of  jobs you would need to know how to sew for like making spacesuits.
