Now we're going to be doing a few different basting stitches. A basting stitch is a long straight stitch that is meant to be temporary. It is a "practice" stitch in some ways, allowing you to tack the fabric together before sewing your final stitch. This will yield better results when you go to sew your final stitch!
To set your machine to a basting stitch, select a straight stitch and then increase the stitch length as long as your machine will let you. Do not back stitch unless directed.
Straps & Tabs
Take your 2 strap pieces and tab pieces and fold them in half lengthwise with right sides together. Using a basting stitch, stitch along the length of each strap to attach it together. There is 1/4" seam allowance for these, so sew your basting stitch inside of that, like at 1/8".
Take your 2 tab pieces and repeat the same process. There is also 1/4" seam allowance for these.
