How to Sew Doll Clothes: When you need a pusher

I love my pusher. Trouble is every time I use it I think of train pushers.

There are various times when a pusher comes in handy but the most often use for my pusher is to get around those hard to top stitch points on collars or corners on cuffs.

I have just turned and pressed my collars and I need to top stitch around them.

I start by stitching 1/8" from the edge.

When I get to the corner I keep the needle down and lift the presser foot.

The narrow slot just fits around the needle as you slide it under the collar.

Do 3 or 4 stitches then with the needle down, lift the presser foot and slide out the pusher.

Continue stitching around the collar. You gat a nice neat corner.

My pusher is an old birthday card. When it gets wrinkled or bent I can easily make a new one.

Happy Sewing,
