sewing knitting to material
What is the best way to sew material to my knitting using a sewing machine. I have heard it is difficult or impossible?
Thanks

Pin the knitting to the fabric really evenly, making sure nothing bunches or stretches. Put the fabric side on the bottom. Now pin a piece of paper to the top of the knitting. Your presser foot will go smoothly over the paper, and when the seam's done you can tear it right off!

Happy sewing!

I sew things together usually with a zigzag stitch- stretches better for me.
