Okay, so the other day I saw this tweet, and I was floored:
The tip here is making little marks on your thumbnail so that all your stitches align at the same distance from the edge of the fabric.
I sew like, once a year (if that), but I still felt my life shifting under me once I gained this helpful information. It's a very tiny tip to greatly improve your life in a small way. But the small things add up, you knowwwww!
Obviously now I NEED MORE TIPS, not just sewing related. So tell me: what's something simple but useful that you learned from someone in your family? Share it with us so that we can also benefit from your grandma's (or aunt's or parent's or second cousin's) wisdom.
It can be about anything, as long as it's helpful!!! So please, comment below (with pictures if you can), and you might be featured in a future BuzzFeed post.
