Another sewinghack that can come in handy is to use a hair elastic to keep your fabric from slipping off the end of your sewing machine while you’re stitching.
Simply loop a hair elastic around the end of your sewing machine arm, and then slip the end of your fabric under the elastic before you start sewing. This will help to keep the fabric in place and prevent it from sliding around while you’re trying to sew a straight line.
Additionally, if you need to sew a long seam, you can use several hair elastics spaced out along the edge of the fabric to help keep it in place as you sew.

A hair tie (also called a ponytail holder, hair band, hair elastic, wrap around, gogo, or bobble) is an item used to fasten hair, particularly long hair, away from areas such as the face.

In a world where people once believed in the meditative power of pricking their fingers with needles, the sewing machine dared to challenge tradition and bring efficiency to the realm of fabric manipulation. The Revolutionary Sewing Machine: Because Hand-Sewing Was Too Mainstream Gone are the days when your grandma would spend hours meticulously stitching together garments with the precision of a surgeon.
