Hello Dreamers! Halloween is coming, and it’s time to decorate our house, so in this post, we show you an effortless way to make a spider web.
The better of this project is the quick way to make it, with some fabric, our sewing machine, and the most important thing to make the effect is the Schmetz hemstitch needle and the metallic thread by the Gütermann brand.
So… let’s start to make our horrifying spider web for your halloween decoration.
- 1/2 meter of organdy fabric
- 1/2 meter of poplin or cotton cloth
- Metallic threads
- Chalk wheel
- Domestic sewing machine
- Schmetz hemstitch needle
1. On each of the fabric we will mark a square of 18” by 18”.
Once you have it ready, cut the square.
Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect because you will trim the edges.
2. Pin the fabrics and mark the center on both sides with your universal ruler and the chalk wheel.
3. Then, draw lines through the corners to form the structure of the spider’s web.
4. Join the lines forming curves between them. They will serve as a guide for sewing.
- On upper part we will use a metallic thread.
- And the bottom part of the bobbin, standard thread.
Select the zig-zag stitch with the length of 1 or 2 in your sewing machine.
6. Now, sew the seams from the outside to the inside.
- Start sewing the centerlines.
- Remember to use your hemstitch needle.
If you don’t have it, here we leave you a link where you can purchase it.
We use an open-end presser foot, but you can use a standard presser foot.
7. Once finished, trim off the excess thread.
8. Now, only take the thick layer of fabric.
And cut as close to the seam as possible.
At this point you can use your little scissors.
Trim very carefully so as not to cut the organdy
9. When finished, cut the organdy outline as you please… and you decoration will be ready!
Now you have a spider web decoration!
Also we prepare the step-by-step video tutorial to illustrate your project.
It’s so easy to do!
